Parks Advisory meeting:: Rick Tabor made a motion to send a recommendation to the city council for a dog park above the paved parking lot at Hartley Park. The motion was seconded by Nancy McClung. On May 8th, the city council will be meeting to approve this recommendation.


March 13, 2006

Made proposal asking the city of Sutherlin if we could have the upper portion of Hartley park, above the parking lot, for a fenced in, off-leash dog park. The city council heard us out, and also, Dr. Kadas was there to support us, who owns the property next to Hartley. He voiced to the city council that he thought the park would be a good idea and maybe due to it, Hartley park could be cleaned up and made useful. Rick Tabor, a council member, suggested that we go back to the park's advisory committee with this proposal and he would be sure that we were on their agenda at the next meeting. We learned and were assured at this council meeting that Hartley park was not, at this time, up for sale. New supporter for the park is Dr. Mary Herrera, our Sutherlin vet. She made this known by letter to the city council. Next steering committee meeting is on April 3rd, at Apple Peddler, at 5:30 pm.
