In January, we wrote about the effort of two city councilmembers to turn a vacant lot at the corner of Forest and Nuestra into a temporary dog park. According to Councilman Lee Kleinman the park could still happen.
“There has been no push back at all,” he says. “But no one is materializing to help raise the funds.”
He and Councilwoman Jennifer Staubach Gates hope pet owners in our neighborhood will become interested enough in the proposal to support it monetarily. Installing the dog park would cost around $230,000 and that money needs to come from companies or individual donors. If the funds are not raised, the green space will remain unused until 2020 or later when the city plans to begin building the new Preston Royal Library.
Those interested in supporting the project should call Gates’ office at 214.670.7057 or Kleinman’s office at 214.670.7817.
