Bainbridge Parks to revise permit for dog park

Plans have stalled for a new off-leash dog park at the former landfill on Vincent Road.

City officials have turned the property permit back over to the Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park and Recreation District for further review.

At the more recent parks board meeting, district staff said the property permit was paid and submitted to the city earlier this year.

The district received a letter Friday, Feb. 14, however, stating the permit was incomplete and would be considered pending until the district provides more information on the property.

Included on the to-do list, city staff are requesting more data on the site’s storm water drainage, engineering plans for fencing and traffic studies on the surrounding area.

The parks district must complete the additional requests by mid-April.
