Collegedale In The Running For 2019 Dog Park Dash Grant

Friday, June 14, 2019

The city of Collegedale is asking for the community’s help in competing with numerous other communities for one of 30 2019 Dog Park Dash grants. The $25,000 grant would provide the funds to revitalize and enhance the city’s dog park to better serve the community.

Collegedale is now in the second phase of the grant process and needs community engagement to help set Collegedale apart from the other competing cities.   

One way the community can help is by posting on their Facebook and Instagram accounts. The public is invited to post a picture with a dog on social media with the description “I want Collegedale to win the #dogparkdash grant.” They area also asked to tag Collegedale Parks and Recreation in the post as well.

Another opportunity in this second phase is for community members to write a letter of support. An online form makes the support letter process quick and easy dogparkdash.com/support.  This only takes a few minutes to fill out. Letters will be immediately added to the application.

Thinking out of the box is encouraged to increase the possibilities of Collegedale being a Dog Park Dash grant winner.  Any photos or videos of community support for Collegedale’s Dog Park can be submitted.

“With the funds from the Dog Park Dash grant, we can add fun elements and agility equipment to the park,” said Traci Hobek, Collegedale Parks and Recreation director.  “Our Survey Monkey questionnaire had positive feedback on updating the current park and offering obstacle course and play equipment for our community’s furry friends.”

The community engagement phase will end June 30 at 5 p.m. CST.  For more information contact Andy Stone, Parks and Recreation program specialist at astone@collegedaletn.gov or call 468-1971.
