Family use area and dog park proposed

Ashcroft residents  Monty Downs, Vivian Edwards and Kitty Murray asked Council to turn a portion of the pool park into a fenced area for families and dogs  at a March 23 committee meeting.

“We would like an opportunity to demonstrate that people and pets can recreate together without conflict,” Monty Downs told Council.

The group said they would look for grant money to cover the facilities they wanted for the new area if Council approved letting them use the land.

Council created a select committee a few weeks later to look into the dog park issue. The committee eventually recommended that the Village look into setting up a dog park.
