Keep voting!!! :) Wondering why the current vote count is all "????????"

Dog Parks help raise the value of your property and are the 3rd thing people ask about when buying a house in a new city. First they ask about schools,then buses and then dog parks. Some one is spreading a lot of false rumors about cutting down trees, taking out the walking path and putting a fence around the entire park and turning dogs loose in there. ALL FALSE, OR ALL LIES. NONE OF THE ABOVE WILL HAPPEN, This park will be well maintained and kept clean. Keep voting, nice surprizes are about to happen for us.

4,741 & 4,742 keep voting everyone we need this dog park! Don't forget to vote everyday

There are much better resources for dog park information than a blogger stating their opinion. For example, the book Dog Park Design, Development, and Operation by Marilynn R. Glasser or Off-Leash Dog Play: A Complete Guide to Safety & Fun by Robin Bennett.

Here is one link to the good and bad of dog parks. Things to consider when money is raised and plans move forward. Might have to copy and paste. http://shibashake.com/dog/enclosed-dog-parks-good-or-bad

I feel a dog park ia an access to the city of Taylor. I know people who are paying fees to other cities to use their dog park. As a dog owner in Taylor I would enjoy having one in our own city. It is great for the dogs, it is a safe place for them to run and socializy with other dogs. You have my vote.

NO TREES WILL BE CUT DOWN IN BOARDMAN FOR TH EDOG PARK AND WE WILL HAVEA DOG PARK. Every neighborhood has a person that complains about everyhing that doesn't personally concern them. One man on one street will not stop what will benefit the community. Spreading false rumors will not stop the park either. Everyone will benifit fromthe improvement to Boardman Park. Better drainage will help alleviate the mosquito problem and better parking for sledding in winter. Good things will happen there. Keep voting.

Good morning, I dont want anyone to feel down about being in last place. Even if we dont win we won't stop. We have many fundraisers lined up as well as other things to make money.WE "WILL" HAVE A DOG PARK IN TAYLOR.i will not stop tell we do. We have a few people in this BIG city that want to see this fail and that's not going to happen. KEEP VOTING......We have a lot of prizes we can win that will help with the dog park as well. The site will be in the hands of the City Council and I can't see any of them saying NO. Knowing that Taylor has so many dog lovers thay are working so hard to have a park. Thanks everyone for everything your doing and we will continue to push forward!!!!!!

3969 & 3970 You are welcome Patricia Case Anderson

Keep voting people, we talked to people at the Festival and after seeing the plans for the park they are all excited for the park. A lot of the people in that neighborhood want to help with fund raisers to be a part of the improvement of Boardman and raising property values. It raises property value, vacent homes get sold and everyone wins.
