Dayton Dog Park Project by Friends of Dayton Dog Park (FDDP) 
Get ready for the grand openning ... soon!
A number of local citizens formed an organization - FDDP and raised funds in support of a dog park in Dayton. Now there only remains a few final touches to complete the park before the grand openning.
The location is just south of the fish pond in the Pietrzycki (Dayton) City Park.  The City revised it's code to allow the off-leash dogs park and owners may now walk with their dog on a leash from S. 2nd St. and also the Levee Path to the dog park, see map
If you would like to become involved with FDDP, please contact Carol Rahn, Co-Chair of FDDP at 509-520-8922  or  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  
Sign & Sidewalk Use Code Update Project  ON HOLD
Workshops were held in Feb & March of 2015. However with the June 2015 Supreme Court Ruling of Reed v. Gilbert, the city has chosen to take a slower approach allowing for the development of new “best practices” to emerge.  If you are interested in being added to the contact list for updating the City’s Sign Code, please contact the Planning Department.
