TICONDEROGA - Ticonderoga's canine residents may soon have their own place to play and relax.
The Ti town board discussed the creation of a dog park recently.
Dorcey Crammond, chairwoman of the town parks and recreation committee, pointed out such a facility is needed in the community - especially since dogs are banned from Bicentennial Park and the Ti airport, once a popular spot for dogs and owners, is now off limits to pedestrian traffic.
"We've had a request for a designated area for dogs to run off a leash," Crammond explained.
Crammond suggested town property at the intersection of Lord Howe Street and Alexandria Avenue could be an ideal location for a dog park.
The only thing needed at the locations, which is now unused, is a fence, she said.
The fence, though, is a problem, Crammond and Ti Supervisor Bob Dedrick agreed.
The town has no money in its budget for a fence around the proposed dog park.
"I think it's a good idea," Dedrick said of the dog park. "The prohibiting factor is the fencing."
