City working to create Dog Park
I recently emailed Rob Knudsen, Council representative to Councilmember Brian Maienschein and asked him about the latest Dog Park news. I've received inquiries from a number of people who "subscribe" to the RB eNEWSLETTER.
Well, folks it's looking good so far. Our Councilmember is working hard for us, and we appreciate it. Our "best friends" will be able to socialize without a leash in the new fenced park. No more dogs running free and frightening the walkers in the Rec Park grounds. Here's the latest quote from Rob:
"Currently, we have surveyors completing a report for our Metro Waste
Water Department. As you know they are the current landowners. This is
necessary for them to protect their existing lines and any future lines that
may be necessary in the future. This report should be completed in 2-3 weeks.
Once that is completed, MWWD and the Park and Recreation Department will sit
down with the Attorney's office and negotiate a final agreement. While this is
being conducted, the Park and Recreation Department will request this item to
come before the City for approval. This will take 2-4 weeks. Once all the
respective departments sign the necessary documents and this item is docketed
for City Council, we strongly feel that this will be approved no later than the
3rd week of April this year.
A lot of us can hardly wait, and there are some things that can be done right now. You can email me with your name, address, phone and email address. Just say, " Count me in to help." I'll put you and all your dog-owning friends on the Dog Park Mailing List - you'll be mailed all the latest information and how you can help. Email me at: email@example.com/
