On Tuesday, April 9th, the Common Council approved the measure to move the dog park initiative forward! Again, I am very proud of the joint venture between the city, the county, County Board Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic and myself. The city is providing the land as well as the fencing and drain tiles while the county handles the administrative aspects of the dog park. We have a lot of dog owners in our district and it is high time we have a place for them to let their dogs run off leash. Best case scenario is that by late summer we should have our dog park up and running near the Bay and Lincoln Bridge. Working together we are continually adding new amenities to improve our quality of life and making this the best part of the city to live.
