SCITUATE DOG PARK
Final construction funding application has been sent to the Stanton Foundation, pending approval. Bids will be accepted very soon, please monitor bid postings in the Scituate Mariner in the near weeks.
Site Plan and architectural design have been approved by the Conservation Commission and also by the Planning Board. This is what we've been working towards, and waiting for! This is also the key part of the permitting process and then bidding. This now gives us what we need to submit for final construction grant funding. Thanks to Architect Justin Lamoureux, P.E. of Horsley Witten Group and the entire Town Engineering department (Sean McCarthy).
Surveys are complete. The architects and civil engineers are now drafting the plan to send to the Stanton Foundation. We expect to break ground sometime in January, then approximately 3 weeks of excavation and construction. Stay tuned for more updates!
Please join us for the Scituate Dog Park Howl-oween Fundraiser which will be held at The Barker Tavern on October 21, 2017
to celebrate the opening of the Scituate Dog Park. The evening will feature a cocktail reception with hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, dancing,
live entertainment from Scituate's own Doc Ellis Band, photo booth, premier raffles, and dessert.
The first official dog park for Scituate and the South Shore, met with voting approval at the Scituate Town Hall meeting on April 27th. Design, location, concept, grant funding and now community of Scituate residents, approved. Construction begins this summer.
