Fort Smith hosts design workshops for dog park at Chaffee Crossing
FORT SMITH, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — The City of Fort Smith, Fort Chaffee Redevelopment Authority and Sebastian County invite the public to attend two upcoming community workshops for the design of the city’s new dog park at Chaffee Crossing.
The workshops will allow the public to provide ideas, input and feedback on future developments for the new 24-acre dog park located at the intersection of Fort Chaffee Boulevard and Taylor Avenue.
The community workshops will take place as follows:
April 28, 2022, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Chaffee Crossing Media Center
7801 Ellis Street, Fort Smith
May 12, 2022, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
City of Fort Smith
101 No. 2n/a Street
Fort Smith, AR 72901
“Public input is an integral part of any public project design, but this one is particularly important because not only does it involve the public, but also their experience with their pets. We want to hear from each of them in order to plan the best possible design,” says City Administrator Carl Geffken.
The public can also contribute by an online survey, which will be available until May 6, 2022.
The final dog park design will be unveiled in a public meeting May 24 at 6 p.m. at the Fort Smith Board of Directors meeting at the Blue Lion at 101 N. 2n/a Street.
The joint project replaces the old Fort Smith airport park and the new park is scheduled to open in late summer.
