A big doggo thank you to Alderman Rossana Rodriguez and Alderman Matt Martin for their support of the dog park. With their help, we were able to send the final construction plans to the Chicago Park District. The estimated cost of completion of the dog park is $250,000 which includes: a water fountain, paved entryway, small dog area, water feature for cooling, turf play fields, benches, and landscaping among other improvements.
We have already raised $185,000 and are hoping to add $25,000 through the Participatory Budgeting process–so again, please vote! http://tinyurl.com/vote4dogs In addition, we plan on raising $30,000 more from offering honoree benches–stay tuned for exciting details!! and the remainder of the funding will come from generous donations from people like you. Please help make 2020 the year the dog park gets done. Here’s to no more mud!
Alderman Mell has supported the dog park throughout her tenure, both financially and with sweat equity as she stood beside us in helping the Park District re-imagine what a dog park could be and pushed them to keep things moving forward.
Without her efforts, we would not have completed the Phase I fencing project, nor would we have a Phase II teed up for build. We greatly appreciate all that she has done for the dog park, as well as for Horner Park and the ward as a whole.
The DFAC would like to thank her for her service to our community and wish her the best of luck in her next endeavors.
