Council Discusses Dog Park Budget & Design, Monday

Simplified dog park design by Erik Saul.

The Takoma Park City Council will discuss the new, smaller dog park design this Monday, March 9.  Public comments are taken about 7:30. The Council discussion will occur about 8:10 p.m. in Council chambers at 7500 Maple Avenue in Takoma Park. Please come and show your support by making a comment, wearing your dog park t-shirt, and telling Council you want the gates open this summer.

TakomaDogs Chief Designer, local architect Erik Saul, has reduced the size and complexity of the dog park, saving about $100,000 from the original design. You can view the City Council packet here. Click the picture, above, if you want to see an overview of the design.
