North Castle Town Board has discussed plans for a public dog park in Armonk. Two locations are under consideration: the park at the corner of Maple Avenue, Bedford Road and Route 22, or behind the Hergenhan Recreation Center.

Which location is preferable and why?

I think the main sentence is \"The fire siren is located on the same property and it might scare the dogs.

About 3 years ago the Recreation Department did a survey and it was posted on the town website. A dog park was far from the top priority. Why the focus on a dog park vs. other greater priorities noted by residents?

That is interesting....What are the other greater priorities noted by residents??

The highest areas needed as identified by residents were bike paths, hiking areas, an indoor pool, and nature areas, in that order. Dog parks was near the bottom of the list. I printed the report when it was first posted but it is no longer on the website. I'm sure the town clerk or rec dept. can produce a copy.

Your right... There are a number of \"ideas\" that have taken up valuable time and expense on behalf of the constituents over the years. Opportunities come and go, when they come they need to be capitalized on to benefit the community, when opportunities are neglected its a disservice. Now that the storm has made a mess of that area it makes sense to clean it up and extend the recreational and park space. The dog park is a good idea for that particular space, there may be others, the parking would be nice for people enjoying the park as well. The opportunity to do something there is now, given the situation. A hiking/bike trail would be nice along the wampus brook river from the pond down to the town pool. I believe that has been talked about for about 15 years, among other improvements.
