Help needed in dog park develpment


To the Editor,

The new Amery dog park location has been selected and approved by our city council (corner of Minneapolis Avenue and Griffin Street East). An advisory committee was established over three years ago to assist the city with adopting a plan for the park. The current plan includes fenced-in areas, one for small dogs, one for larger dogs. As we proceed with plans, we need lots of help from Amery citizens, whether you are a dog owner or would like to be a part of the dog park’s development. 

As we know, “many hands make light work”. There are several areas of development where we are in need of help. The hope is that should enough citizens join the effort, no one will be burdened with too much work or responsibility. Some duties might involve making phone calls, overseeing construction, maintenance, or other activities, we would also welcome folks who can simply attend our monthly meetings to offer suggestions and support to the group and to the city. Our meetings take place on the third Tuesday of each month. The location is the Amery Public Library, time is 4:00PM. Please consider joining us for this important project. More information can be given by emailing
