Task Forces Forming

Mark Your Spot Now

A number of park users and supporters met on Saturday, May 21 to discuss the Park's status in the County's planning, the process of becoming a Community Canine Area (CCA), the organization of Clarendon Dogs, and how to move forward. The meeting ellicited a lively and constructive discussion and many good ideas.

Based on consensus reached during this meeting, the following task forces are now being formed and are in need of members and coordinators. Becoming involved in a task force is an excellent way to have your voice heard and to influence the future of the Park. Send an email to ClarendonDogs@yahoo.com indicating all task forces in which you are interested, as well as any that you may wish to coordinate.

Community Relations. This task force will spearhead our efforts to maintain and improve our standing in the surrounding community by identifying all stakeholders in the Dog Park from both the residential and business neighborhood, being proactive in identifying and addressing concerns about the Park, organizing educational and promotional opportunities, and planning meet-and-greet or other events. Coordinator: open.

CCA Planning. This task force will stay abreast of County and civic organization hearings and meetings that might impact our efforts to become a CCA, and will mobilize CDogs members into action. They will work on planning groups, develop relations with County officials and civic organization leaders, and will insure that Clarendon Dogs has a voice and presence in all relevant events. Coordinator: Peter (Taylor's Human).

Fund Raising. This task force will plan and organize fund raising events and activities other than membership. Events may include activities (such as Dog Washes), merchandise sales (such as Calendars, bandanas, T-shirts), procuring donations, etc. Coordinator: open.

Membership. This task force will develop a Clarendon Dogs membership plan to present to the Park community for approval, and will organize and implement a membership drive. Coordinator: open.

Park Care. This task force will organize and lead efforts to maintain and improve the Park grounds and facilities. Coordinator: open.
