The town of Canandaigua wants in on the Canandaigua Canine Campus, too.
The Town Board on Monday night voted to split the phase-one construction costs of the dog park, which is being built off Buffalo Street, with the city. Some preliminary clearing work has begun at the site.
Supervisor Greg Westbrook said he and city officials have been talking of sharing services for some time under the heading of “One Canandaigua.”
“This is an example of ‘One Canandaigua’ behavior,” Westbrook said.
The cost of the first phase is estimated at about $60,000, with work to include fencing, sidewalks, water and electric service, and parking lot, although an unpaved one, according to City Manager John Goodwin.
“Essentially, you get a functional dog park the community can enjoy,” Goodwin said.
Town Manager Doug Finch said the town and city have been talking about ways to share services and programs, and the dog park has generated a lot of interest from town residents.
