A public input session about the proposed Haddington Court facility happened Thursday at The Center of Clayton.
Clayton official Toni Siering recently toured a number of St. Louis-area dog parks as part of the city's efforts to develop its own canine facility. Most surprising to her: The variety.

Supporters of a proposed dog park along a section of DeMun Avenue in Clayton are endorsing a proposal to pair the city with Concordia Seminary, which has offered part of its property as a possible site. But more than 200 residents who live near the site don't think that's such a great idea. They have signed a petition in opposition to the project. Meanwhile, the city has distributed a survey that likely will play a key role in determining whether the plans advance.
