Parks and Rec Commission Support Schipske Suggestion for Dog Park

After much discussion and a public visitation on site, held by my office, I am very proud to announce that the Parks and Recreation Commission unanimously voted today to support my proposal to not to take public park land or land that could be used to expand the Nature Center -- and instead to go ahead with a 1.6 acre dog park in the "tree farm" maintenance yard.

I previously posted the map and I do believe this is a "win-win" on this issue. Now hopefully, the other council members will check out the site and support this effort.

My thanks to Parks and Rec staff who finally agreed that this location was the best for all concerned.

Parks and Rec Staff Agree -- Finally -- To Propose Using Non Park Land for Dog Park

I am relieved to learn last week that Parks and Rec Staff have finally agreed that using a portion of the existing maintenance yard -- and not the parcel nearer the nature center and community gardens, would be MUCH better than using existing park land.

As you can see from the map above, this is the area I proposed so that it could be connected with the Animal Care Center to the right of the property.

I do not however agree that 0.3 acres of the parcel below should be taken for parking. Simply let people park at the Animal Care Center or at the Nature Center...don't take more land for this project.

By using the maintenance yard parcel we will only have to fence one other side (3 sides are fenced).

Thank you staff. I believe this is a win-win for everyone.
