Two Girl Scouts, Kristen Hickey and Anna Colanduoni, have helped to build the park in off Route 100 in Fogelsville, but their fundraising efforts can only stretch so far.

If this is a girl scout project why is the township paying for it? You gave them the space, they should be soliciting for donations to complete it, not looking to put it in our budget. That is not what a gold or silver award is supposed to be about. If the residents want to donate, give the girls a list of dog owners and let them go around and see what they can come up with. I don't care if we have a dog park or want anymore "special" areas. You should not have spent so much money on you Independence Rd putting green ( 1.3million). We all know that that house was overpriced, that is why it was on the market for so many years.

I have two dogs and would gladly give to the Dog Park. I think it would be a great plus for our Township.
