Council agrees to look into dog park

Ashcroft Council agrees to form a Select Committee of Council to look into dog park options.

Ashcroft Council voted to put together a Select Committee of Council to investigate the proposal for a new family use area and dog park and determine the overall costs.

Council made the decision at its Apr. 13 meeting after checking with other communities to see how their dog parks or mixed use facilities were doing.

Forming the public committee “doesn’t commit council to anything,” said Ashcroft Mayor Jack Jeyes.

It only means that the Village is going to look into it, he said.

“Council appreciates the presentation (made  to Council to March 23) but was concerned about where it was proposed,” he said. “We’ve already lost a baseball field to soccer and only have one left.

Jeyes said there are other issues that need to be studied. He added that all of the municipalities contacted advised against putting a hard surfaced track in a dog park.

Administrator Michelle Allen told councillors that a Select Committee of Council would first establish terms of reference regarding how they would operate and what they would investigate, and then they can look at different options and what the costs would be.
