Resolution 2019-101 - A Resolution Renaming the Tower Park Dog Park Miss Peggy's Bark Park
Background
The City's dog park is located in the southwest corner of Tower Park near I-65 and consists of two separate areas, one for large dogs and one for small dogs.  The dog park is currently named Barkwood and there is an existing sponsorship agreement with Mars Petcare Company that expires in February of 2020.

Recently, the Citizens for Brentwood Green Space (CBGS) made a contribution to the City that included approximately $66,000 of funds from a bequest from the estate of Peggy Howell to CBGS.  Peggy was a well known community volunteer who was also well known for her love of dogs.  As part of its inclusion of the funds from the Howell bequest in the recent donation, CBGS requested that the City permanently rename the dog park Miss Peggy's Bark Park in Peggy's honor.  While the Mars Petcare sponsorship is not directly tied to the name of the dog park, staff recommends that the proposed renaming become effective after the existing sponsorship agreement expires in February of 2020.

The Park Board considered the renaming request at its November 4, 2019 meeting and unanimously voted in support of the new name.

If the dog park is renamed as requested by CBGS, staff recommends that the funds from the Howell bequest be held in a separate account and be dedicated to future major maintenance and enhancement of the dog park, including any new signage required.
Staff Recommendation
The proposal to rename the dog park is being presented as a result of the request from CBGS and with the support of the Park Board.  If the renaming is approved, staff recommends that the funds from the Howell bequest be held in a separate account and dedicated to future major maintenance and enhancement of the dog park.
