Dog park plans to go before Paso council Tuesday

The Paso Robles City Council will review plans for a proposed dog park in Paso Robles at its meeting Tuesday.

Council members will consider whether to authorize city staff to work with the local group Parks-4-Pups to find a location and develop an operating agreement.

The group is proposing to build and maintain an approximately 1-acre fenced off-leash dog park somewhere on city-owned property.

Total project costs, estimated to be about $35,000, would be shared through construction loans from the San Luis Obispo Parks, Open Space & Trails Foundation, donors and fundraising events with no expense to the taxpayers, according to the plan.

A potential location for the dog park would then be presented to the council at a future date.

The City Council meets at 7:30 p.m. at the City Hall/Library Conference Center, 1000 Spring St.
