Dog Park in Ludlow Park

The Petitions were delivered! Hurray the Canvasser...
Author Last Post
Our signed petitions were presented to Yonkers City Councilman, Wilson Terrero, by Cindy Pramann and myself on Friday, August 26th! (See tallied results below.) Councilman Terrero was visibly excited to be moving forward with this project. He and his staff have already been shaping a formal resolution to bring to the Yonkers City Council this fall, based on the proposal we've sent them.

The only part he has asked us to sketch out further is the issue of funding, as the Council will not go along with the project if it significantly impacts the city budget. Construction of the basic dog park will cost between $10 - 12,000, mostly for the sturdy fencing.

We estimate being able to raise at least $2,000 from the local community through:

* direct appeals;
* fundraising projects (bake sales, silent auction, a car/dog wash event); and
* sale of dedication plaques to be affixed to sections of the fence and to benches.

May we add your name(s) to the list of people willing to pledge at least $15 to build the park? - Please reply to with a YES!

We intend to gather the remaining funds through grants from manufacturers of pet supplies supplies (e.g. Petco Foundation), local businesses (e.g. Hudson Valley National Foundation), and various land-use organizations with guidance from GroundWorks Hudson Valley. We gladly welcome your additional suggestions and offers of involvement!

On behalf of the Steering Committee,
-- Kathe Hertzberg
