TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
A group called Toledo Unleashed has applied for a Special
Use Permit, to convert the former South Toledo YMCA location into a 4-acre dog
Tina Yoppolo, president of Toledo Unleashed, says she's
motivated to improve the quality of life in Toledo.
"Toledo's a wonderful place, but it's missing some amenities
that other cities have," Yoppolo said. "This is going to be a wonderful place
to exercise your dog, keep your dog happy and healthy, might be a wonderful
place for you to meet some like-minded people."
Through a proposed lease agreement with the city, Toledo
Unleashed would be responsible for all expenses to build the dog park, which Yoppolo
estimates at $65,000, and for maintaining the park, which she says would be
covered through membership fees.
The permit request will be reviewed by the Toledo Planning
Commission on August 8.
