Welcome from Lancaster Unleashed, Inc.!

We are Lancaster Unleashed, Inc, an organization working toward getting a dog park. Lancaster, New York currently has almost 6000 licensed dogs. They need a place to exercise and socialize. Please support a dog park in our town!

We have 3 possibilities for a dog park in our town:

  1. A town park in Lancaster - We have attended a town board meeting and spoken to town officials about available places. At this time, it looks like they don't have anything that is the size/location we are seeking.
  2. Como Lake Park in Lancaster, which is a county park - We spoke before the Erie County Energy & Environment Committee in November 2017, and met with some county representatives in January 2018. While we don't have a firm commitment from them, we are going to talk with them again once the Parks Department releases its new Master Plan within the next few months.
  3. We may look into sending a proposal to the Village of Lancaster as well.

New Board

At our monthly meeting last night, we revised our bylaws to slightly change our governing structure. Now, in addition to our 5 officers, we also have board members. You can find all of our officers and board members listed on the About Us page. Thank you to all for your commitment to getting a dog park in Lancaster!

Erie County Energy & Environment Committee

Today, our officers spoke in front of a meeting for the Erie County Energy & Environment Committee, which oversees the parks. We gave them our formal proposal and a single page of bullet-points (which are attached here) and requested land in Como Lake Park for a dog park. Parks Commissioner Dan Rizzo told us that he's not opposed to the idea, but wants to wait to discuss it further after the county parks have released their master plan. This will be sometime in January 2018, so we will meet with him then. We will keep you all updated.
