A press release from Emily Bull Valley Trustee Emily Berendt:
The Bull Valley Dog Park: Opening Soon!
Applications are available now for Charter Memberships and annual resident permits to the new Bull Valley Dog Park.
A dog park permit would make a great holiday gift for the dog lover in your family.
While official opening is in January 1, 2014, we will be allowing early admission to charter members and early annual resident purchasers as soon as the fencing is done and the site is ready.
There will be no extra charge for this trial run but users must be aware that the park will not be complete.
Bring water for your dog and your own pick-up bags.
Parking is limited.
A Grand Opening celebration and fundraiser is planned for spring of 2014.
A limited number of fifty Charter Memberships are available now through March 1, 2014, to Bull Valley and Woodstock residents only.
Charter Memberships are $500 and entitle the holder to a ten year permit for up to two dogs.
Annual permits for 2014 are also available at this time.
Both Woodstock and Bull Valley residents within their respective municipal boundaries will pay resident rates.
Resident permits are $60 a year for up to two dogs.
Non-resident permits for 2014 are $125 a year.
There is an additional nonrefundable $5 processing fee for annual applications.
Additional dogs can be registered under any permit for an additional fee.
Up to four dogs can be registered on an individual permit but only two registered dogs may be brought into the park under any permit at one time.
All permits will be issued on a first come first served basis by date of completed application, which requires a rabies tag number and description for each dog registered.
Priority will be given to Woodstock and Bull Valley resident applications. Registrants are encouraged to include a photo of each dog registered.
Applicants can pick up their forms at Village Hall or download them from the village web site at www.villageofbullvalley.org.
Completed applications can be returned to the Village by mail or dropped off at Village Hall, but applicants must appear in person once approved to finalize the application and receive their permit stickers.
For information or to apply for a permit, please visit the Village Hall, 1904 Cherry Valley Rd., during business hours, or call the village at 815-459-4833.
