The neighborhood got a look at the proposed Bay Village Dog Park during the monthly meeting of the Bay Village Neighborhood Association Executive Committee Monday at the South Cove apartments.
At this time, Paul Mataras of the Boston Veterinary Clinic outlined deign goals for creating a “safe, healthy and multi-function space for dogs and their parents to spend time together, exercise and socialize” at the corner of Warrenton Street and Charles Street South.
Cambridge-based Gregory Lombardi Design has been contracted to design the park, which has an estimated total cost of between $250,000 and $300,000 and a projected opening date of April 1, 2020. Possible park elements would include a stone bench, artificial turf, overhead lighting, a “sail shade canopy” and a chain-link fence around the site perimeter.
The Executive Committee voted to form a subcommittee to help coordinate funding for the project, facilitate land ownership issues and choose materials and design elements, among other considerations.
In another matter, Bethany Patten, BVNA president, made a motion that passed on behalf of Sarah Herlihy of the Licensing and Planning committees not to oppose Mooncusser Fish House plan’s to relocate from 304 Stuart St. to the former site of Flash’s restaurant at adjacent 310 Stuart St., and provide seating for 86 patrons, including 20 at the bar, which would have a full liquor license.
(Mooncusser would only move to the new relocation if the Patriot Care marijuana dispensary is allowed to move from its current Milk Street location to 304 Stuart St.)
Meanwhile, City Councilor Ed Flynn was on hand and asked those in attendance where funding could be allocated to Bay Village as the city finalizes its annual operating budget.
