LANSING, Ill. (February 19, 2018) – The final designs and budget for Lansing’s dog park have been approved, as reported by Sharon Desjardins, Senior Superintendent of Strategy and Operations for the Park Board. Construction drawings are in process and will be reviewed by the Board soon.

Desjardins reported that because the dog park is now a full acre, the drawings must also be approved by the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD). MWRD’s involvement could delay the project, but the Park Board remains hopeful that any delays will be minimal. They are still anticipating an April groundbreaking date.
