Happy 2018 Dog Owners!
After a long hiatus while waiting for the city’s procurement process* to be completed, ADOA has finally reconvened, elected a new board (please welcome Alexia Vullis to our executive committee!), and received updates regarding the status of our park. According to the Park’s Department Capital Project Tracker, a contract has been secured and construction is set to begin in April 2018 (with completion of the project in April 2019). In response, ADOA’s executive committee is increasing our meeting schedule and will begin strategic planning for the park’s future. We hope to have more information for the community soon. Thank you to all the dog owners in Astoria, and all of our supporters, for the patience while we wait for the park to finally be built. We know it has been a long wait, and we are just as excited to see this project completed as anyone!
