Lancaster! A Dog Park is Coming Your Way?
Lancaster, a group of ladies is leading the pack in an initiative that will hopefully result in a dog park in town! The closest place for a dog park is probably out in East Aurora and with 6,000 licensed dogs in Lancaster, it would be super convenient and awesome to have a park for them.
The group needs a good amount of money to start and execute a plan once approved. They have events throughout the year to raise funds:
- A town park in Lancaster - We have attended a town board meeting and spoken to town officials about available places. At this time, it looks like they don't have anything that is the size/location we are seeking.
- Como Lake Park in Lancaster, which is a county park - We spoke before the Erie County Energy & Environment Committee in November 2017, and met with some county representatives in January 2018. While we don't have a firm commitment from them, we are going to talk with them again once the Parks Department releases its new Master Plan within the next few months.
- We may look into sending a proposal to the Village of Lancaster as well.
