LINCOLN CITY DOG PARK SUPPORTERS PLAN MEETING
Brainstorming Session to Organize Local Effort
Supporters of an effort to establish a Lincoln City dog park will host an organizational meeting on Tuesday, July 10th, from 6:00 to 7:00 PM, at The Eventuary, 560 SW Fleet Avenue.
Establishing a dog park in Lincoln City was first suggested by local resident Cheryl Johnson, who collected almost 700 signatures in support of a park. The Lincoln City Parks Board and City Council have given support to exploring the project. Supporters have recently launched a Facebook page to start a local volunteer group and connect project advocates, including residents, business owners and visitors. The Facebook page can be found by searching for “Lincoln City Dog Park”. Supporters are encouraged to “like” the page to stay in the loop as the project progresses. Project organizers note that over 60 people have already “liked” the page within just a few weeks.
The purpose of the July 10th organizational meeting is to determine the level of interest in developing a dog park, and to brainstorm potential sites and volunteer activities, such as work parties, fundraisers, formation of committees, outreach and publicity. Mayor Dick Anderson and city staff will participate in the meeting to provide maps and other resources. Inquiries or interest in the project should be directed to
Kate Daschel (541-996-1232) or Cheryl Johnson (541-921-1014).
