GO Delaware, OH! Congratulations on loading your land and civic leader letter. You have lots of great BARKS too! We hope to see you in the finals. BARK FOR YOUR PARK!

Just a quick thank you to Jackie Walker and Tom Homan from the City for completing the land verification and civic support documents needed to proceed with this contest. Fingers crossed we will become finalist. At our next meeting we hope to discuss in further detail the three potential locations mentioned in the land verification letter. I believe Blue Limestone is the front runner but we are getting lots of reaction of the pros and cons pretty much daily. If you'd like to have a say, please join the committee at its next meeting. I believe it should be Thursday, June 19th around 5:30 but will confirm details closer to the date. Thanks!

Hi Traci - Thanks for your suggestion. We have a meeting tonight so I'm hoping we might be able to get an ad run in the Gazette. I know our meetings are usually reported on so hopefully we get some press about it that way too. This contest also provides templates for posters and signs and I do hope I'll be able to visit some local businesses this weekend with some signs to post. If you know of people or places I should visit, let me know.

This is absolutely great! The only thought I have...I think those that are not on the computer often or do not have a FB account should be reached out to a different. Different channels equal more votes :)

Dog Park Committee meets tomorrow to discuss more potential locations for our dog park. Once we get a location agreed upon, we'll be sure to update our map. Thanks again for your votes!

Check - Your City has completed this!

PetSafe needs to know your community government supports your pursuit of a dog park. To complete this task, notify your civic leaders (ie: mayor, county executive, city manager, Parks and Recreation director) of the contest and encourage them to create an account to upload a letter.

This step is optional, but getting your pups' faces in the media can't hurt. Get in touch with your local news station and print media to rally support for the new park!
