The Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department will soon hold a public meeting to gather ideas for improvements to the city’s two dog parks.
The meeting will be held in person at 6 p.m. Sept. 30 at the Mutt Run Off-Leash Dog Park, 1330 East 902 Road, according to a city news release. The meeting will require social distancing and masks.
For those unable to attend the meeting, input may be provided through a survey posted on Lawrence Listens. Residents may also stop by the Parks and Recreation administrative office, 1141 Massachusetts St., and fill out a paper copy of the survey. The survey will remain active through Oct. 9.
The meeting and survey will gather input about suggested improvements to the Mutt Run Off-Leash Dog Park and the Riverfront Dog Park, 1594 N. Third St., according to the release. The city has proposed a plan to build a road adjacent to Mutt Run, and a group of Lawrence residents has come out against the plan, as the Journal-World previously reported.
Once all information is collected, a follow-up meeting will be held via Zoom on Oct. 21. The city will announce details and sign-up information for that meeting at a later date. For more information, residents may contact the Parks and Rec administrative office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 785-832-3450.
