Leadville Dog Park Efforts Move Forward
Local efforts to bring an official dog park to Leadville continue to move forward. The Leadville Dog Park Committee’s next meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 22 in the Lake County Commissioners’ Meeting Room in the Lake County Courthouse. All are welcome to attend.
Local efforts are being coordinated by Steve Whittington and Michelle White who advocate that a dog park would provide a place for dogs to run free for needed exercise. It would be a place where dogs and their people could mingle and socialize in friendly ways on neutral ground.
The meetings discussion topics will include updates from the committee’s meetings with the Partnership for Lake County Recreation and the Lake County Recreation Board, and discussing model dog parks and features to be considered for a local park. Local business owner, Sherry Randall offered to organize a fundraiser, and would appreciate receiving ideas for when, where, how, etc. Sherry may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The group has also established a Leadville Dog Park Facebook Page to keep people updated on their efforts.
