cynthia schallock 07/22/2015 I can't seem to 'vote'. Just keep getting back to this Home Page. So discouraged!
Hew Hesterman 07/22/2015 Please extend your special thanks to Community Services Commissioner, Jennifer Goode for moving forward with community outreach and organization of our fledgling Dog Park committee. Also, thanks to "Visit Vacaville" for funding the food & drink for our work party, and to Recology for donating the 20 yard dumpster. Wow! We almost filled it up!
Victoria Lillard 07/22/2015 Final day for voting!! Maybe the votes didn't come in to win the $100,000.00 grand prize, but the heart of Vacaville - I wouldn't trade that for all the votes in the world. It's wonderful that the community has come together and the volunteers that worked so hard last Saturday to make this dream come true is awesome! I was out of town, but the next clean up day, my family and I will be there! Thank you Mr Hesterman for making this possible - we will have lots of happy dogs and happy pet parents!! :-)
Linda Ryder 07/21/2015 Yes it is impossible to get from my computer and several times have failed from my phone, so would have been many more by the sound of it
Marion Elkins 07/21/2015 Why is this so hard? I have tried to. Ore from my phone, but cannot get past all the verifications and copy & paste this ridiculously long code! Really? It's not the White House. So , I can't support my city because I cannot copy the code. Thanks , how ridiculous.

Victoria Lillard 07/08/2015 Let's Bark our Hearts Out!!!!!!!!!
Michelle Thornbrugh 07/07/2015 I have found that if you log into facebook and vote there first, and then go the website, it is easier and doesn't require two logins. Then I can logout of facebook and have my husband login and he can vote on facebook, then the website without any problems.
Peter Wanberg 07/07/2015 If you have more than one person using the same computer to vote, the facebook voting can be hindered. I Recommend using an incognito mode, if your browser has it. In that way the facebook voting doesn't limit you to just one person. My family keeps getting told that we have already voted even though the voting only occured under one person.
Victoria Lillard 07/07/2015 Please vote :-(
John Johnson 07/06/2015

Tammy Fogg 05/14/2015 Vacaville is in a dying need of a dog park that holds a small dog area and med to big dog area. I would love to see the pet park be like the one in Redondo Beach Dog Park or the Woodland Off Leash Dog park that is here in California.
Vacaville as plenty of room to put a dog park out by Midway, Business area by Vacaville Reporter and Genentech area to put in grass, bark or dirt areas with water and pick up your pets poop can area.
Vacaville is a big time pet friendly town and supports lots of animals in need. We would love to see a dog park that the dogs could run free off the leash, play with there friends , have special events for dogs, outdoor dog training day, and so much more!
Please help us vote for this park and support us as we need something fun for the pets to do in this area instead of all the business shopping areas popping up one after the other, to where eventually we won't have no place to have a dog friendly park. Help us win to build this park!
Thank you to everyone that supports and enters!
