Big Park for Dogs seeks funding for dog park
Recent efforts by the Pig Park Regional Community Council to develop a community plan identified that approximately 50% of VOC households include dogs and that a dog park is a highly desired amenity.
Big Park for Dogs has a business plan for a membership-based park and is looking for a viable location in the Village. Big Park for Dogs is seeking funding in a combination of donations, grants and conditional pledges to cover costs of dog park hardscape, such as fencing and shade structures in the amount of $150,000.
A conditional pledge is made now but is not due until a predetermined benchmark is achieved, which could be county permits. If no such permit is issued, the pledge would be null and void.
Meeting with owners of potential sites is a key next step. Donna Michaels attended a meeting with interested community members on June 10 and is supportive of the efforts being pursued by Big Park for Dogs.
