Dog lovers, rejoice. A new dog park will be here next year.

The City Council on Wednesday approved preliminary design of the park, which will be located north of Corby Pond and south of Eagles baseball field (located at 22nd and Marion streets). Its members previously appropriated $150,000 to fund the project, and bids will go out in the spring.

    Let's give a shout-out to Jay Kerner, publisher of Regular Joe. To my knowledge, he was the first to generate serious conversation on this topic.

    The same proposal for the same location was presented to the CIP Committee about 18 months ago. The committee turned down the request for funds. There were many concerns such as: 1. lack of supervision 2. lack of continuous maintenance 3. liability for injuries 4. unauthorized access.
    Many questions were unanswered.

    What is the source of the $150K? Where would it have otherwise been spent?

    Awesome! Saint Joe is slowly entering the modern era. Count me in on membership and private fundraising.
