Parking on streets is not permitted until the snow emergency declaration has been lifted. Forecasts predict heavy winter weather, and crews will be working to clear roads through the snowfall. During the storm, roads may be slick or impassable; drivers are urged to avoid travel if possible.

North Liberty to Consider Dog Park Land Purchase

The North Liberty City Council is set to consider the next step towards a dog park for North Liberty: purchasing land.

North Liberty’s parks plan has included the goal of a dog park, and city staff has been looking for the right piece of available land. Meanwhile, local non-profit Johnson County Dog PAC has donated $50,000 towards facilities and is committed to additional fundraising to help outfit the park. Residents can join the effort by visiting northlibertydogpark.com to make a tax-deductible donation.

“Three years ago, we first met about the possibility of having a dog park in North Liberty. Next week, it can take its next step towards becoming reality,” said Jake Villhauer, North Liberty resident and president of JC Dog PAC. “We’re thrilled that more than 1,000 residents voiced their desire, and the City of North Liberty made finding land for this a priority. We’re excited to help make this happen. North Liberty residents deserve a treat and a scratch behind the ears, because they made their city an even better place to live.”

The proposed purchase of about 11.5 acres is located on North Liberty’s east side, at the curve where Penn Street meets North Liberty Road. Initial plans include more than 7 acres of fenced-in space for dogs to play, plus parking, benches and shelter. Initial estimates to build the park are about $750,000. The City Council will consider the purchase at its meeting on Tuesday, June 12, 2018.

If the city council approves the purchase, additional planning can commence, including a timeline for park development. Residents can join the effort at northlibertydogpark.com.
