Community Preservation Committee Seeks Input on West Somerville Dog Park Feasibility Study

The Somerville Community Preservation Committee (CPC) invites residents to join a conservation about options for a dog park in West Somerville at their Wednesday, January 23 meeting. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Visiting Nurse Association 3rd floor community room (259 Lowell St), and seeks to receive community feedback if and where there is space for a dog park in West Somerville, and how dog parks can be effectively managed in a densely populated urban community. At the meeting, the Civic Space Collaborative will present their results from the Community Preservation Act funded study exploring the feasibility of locating a new dog park in West Somerville. The consultants will then seek community input on the findings from their study.

The CPC commissioned this study through its feasibility study program which allows community members to propose ideas for Community Preservation Act funded projects that need further study to determine their viability. The next application round for the feasibility study program will be announced in April with forms due in May.
