How did the Dog Park Meeting Go on Tuesday Night?

Story submitted by Rick Estenson

Grrrrreat!  A combination of citizens, city officials and members of CAP (Canines At Play) discussed the virtues and challenges of a dog park in our city.  The whole idea is to get public input to select the best possible pilot park location and then allow the CAP group to work with the City Park and Recreation Advisory Board get it done.  There was much enthusiasm in the full room at the lower level of the Archer House.
Also attached is the list of parks for consideration (some were eliminated due to size/shape) for citizens to complete or simply provide CAP comments for them to share with the City at the Park and Recreation Advisory Board's May 9th meeting.  We know there are over 3200 dogs out there in the Northfield area, so get some input from Fido & Rover and let us know their and your thoughts -- comments can be sent to CAP at P.O.Box 51, Dundas, MN  55019.

We also have a website underconstruction but should be up soon.  Here it is for a quick preview
