Group home permitted on Butler's Road, Marystown
Blue Sky Family Care has won its appeal to open a group home in Marystown.
n a decision reached today, the Newfoundland Regional Appeal Board reversed an earlier decision by the Town of Marystown, which had denied the application.
Blue Sky Family Care had applied to the town earlier this year to operate a group home at 31-33 Butler’s Road.
Council refused the application in a meeting on June 3, stating the proposed group home was zoned as a residential area and therefore could not be used for commercial use.
However, the Appeal Board found the town's zoning regulations did, in fact, permit such a home in the residential area and reversed the decision.
