– Create a dog park. Ask for donations of land. Build a fence around it. Add a walking trail for folks to enjoy. Put in a few benches and dog climbing structures. Make 2 sections: “For Friendly Small-Medium Dogs” and “For Friendly Medium-Large Dogs.” One possible location is the vacant land on Wise, before the floral shop. Benefits: dogs get to socialize and exercise. Same for their people. Costs: Building the fence, maintaining the space, buying doggy trash bag containers, picking up debris.

Editor’s Note: Thank you Neva, that sounds like a terrific idea. Many years ago when the present animal shelter was built there was talk about something like a dog park going in on the vacant lot next to it. Let’s talk about it community.
