Tell SPAR "Basic" or "Better"




Shreveport Dog Park Alliance is currently in Stage 4 of the Project Milestones for Shreveport's first official dog park. Stage 7 is the Grand Opening! In order to get to Stage 5 FINALIZE DOG PARK PLAN, Shreveport Parks and Rec need to hear from YOU!
Compare the two designs and also the budgets from the last post and decide what you want.

I vote for BASIC DOG PARK because it costs less, has room for expansion, and would probably get more support.

I also let Tim know that I dont think we need TWO doggy fountains (in order to cut down costs). Just one outside the MAIN ENTRANCE

Basic is fine by me. Who do I need to tell or what email address should I send it to?

Basic is quite enough. Its no wonder there was talk of shutting down the project with a cost like that for the 'better' park. It really isnt like theres no room for expansion right?
With the difference in cost there could be a really great funding for a spay/neuter release homeless dog program, something Shreveport really needs, with our homeless dog problem!
Theres better things to spend the 'better' park money on then the shelter

Would my pitbull be able to enjoy the park? I better hope so! She was rescued, and the sterotypes of pitbulls are far from the truth. I hope there are no "banned breeds."

I think its about time this town got a place for our doggies to play. I know there our cost issues, but I would push for the "better" park just because I know my dog and I don't want to be crowded on Saturday afternoon. I have a few thoughts on the design. First, I can't really judge scale from the pictures, I know they're just rough sketches, but it seems the entrance needs to be bigger. That or two separate entry ways for large and small dogs. Might help to avoid fights breaking out. That being said, the pet fountain(s) are WAY too close the the entrance. Dogs love to greet newcomers and that could make it difficult for people to get in and out.
What kind of fencing will be used. Is it see-through? I think there should be more separation between the small and large dog areas. Or maybe some kind of barrier, shrubs for instance, to limit interaction.
Another big concern is mosquitoes! This is next to the river in an area that floods with the rains. Have you seen the size of the mosquitoes out there?
I know it seems I'm rambling on, but I care about my dog more than a lot of people I know. I know a lot of you do too. Is there a dog park forum or some other place to air out concerns?

I think the Basic Dog Park looks sufficient considering the cost for this project. One suggestion for the plan would be to look at the 2 parks in the Baton Rouge area. While one particularly might have been very expensive to build, you might be able to use some of their ideas in a cost-saving way. Also, from experience, the "Harrell's Ferry Rd Dog Park" in Baton Rouge has a great separation between small and large dog areas (it is still only a fence).
Here is the website for ideas from Baton Rouge dog parks:

Hi, Merely came back here to remind you about Mobile Monopoly. It is a superb technique and WILL make you money, especially seeing as you own a web site. Take a quick look at their video, the strategy is about using Mobile Advertising which is brand new and an unexposed market where you can make thousands by doing hardly any work. I promise you that after you watch their short video it will change you and it will start making you think. http://mobile-mastermind.com

I vote for basic.

FYI, there is a grant opportunity through First Presbyterian Church. The D. Thomason Trust awards money each year, for preferably one time projects which this would be. One of the areas that they award grants for, is bettering Shreveport Bossier. I do not know how to write grant requests, but I could find out some more information about it if you would like. My email address is nancyewilson@gmail.com.

Thanks,

Nancy W. Mobley

I comment whenever I especially enjoy a post on a site or I have something to contribute to the discussion.
It is caused by the sincerness communicated in the article I read.
And on this article "Tell SPAR "Basic" or "Better"".
I was moved enough to drop a thought :-) I actually
do have some questions for you if it's okay. Could it be simply me or do some of these responses appear like left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at additional places, I'd like to follow everything new you have to post.
Would you list all of all your community pages like your linkedin profile,
Facebook page or twitter feed?
