|A Dog Park for Sanford, Maine!||
We were told last week that the city manager and city council was meeting to decide on one of the dog park sites we proposed! We were so happy to hear this! Because the meeting happened yesterday evening (Tuesday) we decided to put off our May 8th meeting tonight until another time. Mrs. Lacroix asked us if we wanted to go to this city meeting, and most of us did want to see what it was going to be like at the City Counsel meeting. The meeting started at 7pm.
Mrs. Lacroix treated us to pizza and soda before the meeting. We really liked this part! We each got to take some leftovers home.
We couldn't wait to split the 3 pizzas.
We had our T shirts on. Together, we marched all the way to the City Hall. We were nervous, too. We found the City Counsel chambers (room) on the 3rd floor.
There were over 40 people at the meeting supporting our idea...They also to see what would become of our idea for a dog park! We were very proud and happy to see that other grown ups in the city liked our plans for a park. The city mayor, council members, and Steve Buck were excited about having a dog park, too! They were not against our project. At the end of the meeting, it was decided the Armory site plan we found needs to go back to the property subcommittee to increase the size from 1/3 of an acre. We liked to hear about the dog park, but other parts of the meeting were confusing and kind of boring. We might go to another meeting soon!
