The Glencoe Park District Board is seeking volunteers to serve on a three month task force to explore the feasibility of dog park sites throughout Glencoe. The group will serve in an advisory capacity to provide input to the Park Board on a potential location, size and features of a dog park.
The Glencoe Park District Committee of the Whole met on May 7, 2019 to discuss the feasibility of a Dog Park in Glencoe, as well as possible locations. The Committee then set other site selection criteria for a dog park site. Finally, the Board directed staff to form a community task force made of residents that are for and against a dog park to further evaluate sites. The Board will accept applications until May 31, 2019, and will then choose the members.
