After the recommendation of the Buffalo City Council, the Vision Buffalo Commission (VBC) will have a public meeting open house on a proposed dog park, scheduled for Tuesday, April 8th from 4:30 to 6pm at Buffalo's City Hall.
All interested are invited to attend the meeting, where information will be provided on dog parks and their positive impacts on recreational opportunities. Information on five proposed sites will also be presented, with input wanted from the public on their preferred location.
Those attending will be able to ask questions of VBC members and learn what criteria was used in determining their first choice of sites, which is the area around the archery building across from the city pool, excluding the sledding area of High School Hill.
Researching locations and gauging public support for a proposed off-leash dog park were given to the VBC by the City Council as one of five proposals that were priorities for the year.
For those unable to attend the meeting but still wish to comment may contact Lynn Barrett, City Planning Director, at the contact information at the end of this story, for the list of five possible sites and the opportunity to comment on the Dog Park Proposal, no later than noon on Tuesday, April 15th.
Results will be presented to the City Council at their regular meeting on the 15th.
