TakomaDogs staff, including Chief Designer Eric Saul, met with City staff today to discuss moving dog park design to the next step in the process. Eric will be conducting the majority of the design work for the dog park, with necessary input from the City's engineer.
The current plan is to have drawings that could be put out to bid by the end of November. City staff will be seeking Council input throughout the process to ensure cost estimates are in line with Council direction. The Public Works Department plans to contact existing suppliers to ensure availability of specified materials.
With next year's construction season starting in the Spring, TakomaDogs hopes to see the dog park open by the end of Takoma Park's fiscal year (June 30, 2015).
TakomaDogs appreciates the enormous time commitment Eric is putting in to make this dog park a reality. Dog park supporters looking for an excellent, community-minded architect should reach out to Eric Saul.
