  • Sandy Smith 05/22/2014 Megan, The Dog Park is going to be open to everyone at no cost to the dog owners. We are trying to raise the money for the cost of the fencing. If we can win one of these prizes, we will have the money that is needed. Otherwise we need to raise the money through fundraisers and that will take a lot of time and effort as the estimated cost of the fencing and installation is about $15,000. But no one is going to be charged to use the park. Registration of dogs will be to make sure that all are vaccinated and licensed. - Sandy Smith
  • Denise Gribanoff 05/22/2014 I think having a dog park is a great idea! 472 votes!
  • Cathie Peck 05/22/2014 I don't believe it is the intent of the park committee is to bar anyone or any dog from the park. Rather the committee is looking for ways to fund the start up expenses related to the creation of the dog park. As a responsible pet owner, I want to be sure that my pet is safe in the park. That means owners have to keep their dogs vaccinations up to date and clean up after their dog. I look forward to seeing what this committee can do with their efforts. I would love to see an agility course set up for dogs. What fun! Invite your neighbors and relatives to vote! Lets make this happen!
  • Pamela Niskanen 05/22/2014 Woof Grrr Yip
  • Megan Stockbridge 05/22/2014 I would love to see a dog park in West Winfield, but I feel that everyone who votes to help put the park in should have free or at least affordable access to the park once it's built!

  • Sandy Smith 05/08/2014 The Village Board of West Winfield, New York has approved the use of a portion of the Henry Hiteman Leather Superfund Site a Dog Recreation Area. This site was a contaminated area that has been part of the Superfund cleanup and has been approved by EPA and DEC for land revitalization for use as a Dog Recreation Area for the benefit of the community. A committee of concerned residents, chaired by Joan Evans, has presented to the Village a conceptual site plan that the Village Board of West Winfield approved on April 14, 2014. The committee is now organizing fund raising activities to pay for the materials and labor necessary to develop this recreation area. The Village of West Winfield is small with approximately 800 residents but is centrally located in southern Herkimer County and the Dog Recreation area would benefit the residents of the Village, the Town and surrounding communities. Please Vote for the dog Recreation Area in West Winfield, New York......Thank you......
