Council extends dog park lease

The City Council on Tuesday extended the lease agreement with See Spot Run Inc. to keep the dog park in Boulder City for at least five more years.

The original lease expired Aug. 31. Since it opened in 2009 at Veterans’ Memorial Park, the dog park has been a positive addition to Boulder City, city staff say. They also complimented the nonprofit organization, which provided countless hours and money to bring a dog park to town.

During the council’s Tuesday night meeting, Councilwoman Peggy Leavitt said the dog park serves as a place for dogs to play and a hub for their owners to socialize.

“It’s kind of a social gathering place for them. They appreciate having a place to get together and also just to visit with one another,” she said. “I think it’s been a great addition to Boulder City.”

City Attorney Dave Olsen added, “We are now all the beneficiaries of a great little exercise area and training area over at Veterans’ Memorial Park.”

The property is leased at no charge; the nonprofit organization maintains the dog park.

In other council news, discussions for the possible renaming of Eagle Drive, School Road and Gingerwood Avenue were tabled for later, City Manager Dave Fraser said.
