TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – A “Bark Park” is coming to Terre Haute.
The Terre Haute Board of Works also approved a 99 year lease of a former Vectren site adjacent to Fairbanks Park.
The lease calls for a payment of $1 per year.
The city says this has been several years in the making.
Vectren will remediate the site at its expense.
This includes installing a barrier 18 inches underground to keep dogs from digging into contaminated soil.
Vectren has agreed to place 18 inches of top soil.
The city parks department will pay for a new fence to surround the perimeter of the 1.1 acre park.
Construction will begin this summer with the bark park opening this fall.
