Subdivision on Hold, Citizens Oppose Dog Park

Subdivision on Hold, Citizens Oppose Dog Park

City Planning Director Lynn Barrett gave her report to the Buffalo City Council at their last meeting, updating them on the proposed subdivision on Klondike Road south of Buffalo.

She said the County Planner had suggested the developer annex into the city because he wanted water and sewer to the lots. The developer has now put the subdivision on hold for the time being.

Barrett then reported on the Cowboy Carousel Feasibility Study.

The Eastern Corridor Planning Grant will be discussed further at the next council meeting.

Barrett gave a brief recap of the open house for the proposed dog park, which took place April 8th.
She said roughly 50 people attended the meeting and information was presented to the council and the Vision Buffalo Commission (or VBC) from the meeting.
The $42,000 grant for the dog park was submitted to the Recreation District for fencing, gates, benches and other amenities.

After her report, Councilman Russ Humphrey submitted surveys that he and Councilman Dave Long had compiled that showed most signing the petition were against the proposed dog park.

Mayor Randy Dyess suggested he forward the survey and petition to the VBC for their review.

Resident Paul Warden spoke to the council in opposition to the dog park and also pointed out the the advertisement for the open house was misleading, suggesting those in FAVOR of the park come and lend support. He suggested some in opposition to the park may have stayed away, figuring they were not wanted at the meeting.

Mayor Randy Dyess suggested the city re-word any advertisements in the future to avoid any confusion in the matter.
