Through the SVN Communities program, and Patronicity, SVN Miller Commercial Real Estate and the City of Salisbury, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, are launching a crowdfunding campaign to build a new dog park in Downtown Salisbury.
Growing communities need more amenities
With a new dog park, Downtown Salisbury’s four-legged residents and visitors will be able to run free in a fenced-in park outfitted with a doggy drinking fountain, a granite hill, fresh landscaping, and more. The surrounding Riverwalk will feature multiple doggie bag stations to keep the Riverwalk accessible and clean.
“With residential space in our downtown already full to capacity, and more being built every day, it is certain that we will continue to see an increase in the number of families with pets who choose to live here,” said Salisbury Mayor Jacob Day, highlighting the need for more pet-friendly public facilities in the area.
Goal of $5,000 to be matched
If the campaign reaches its crowdfunding goal of $5,000 by August 15, 2019 at midnight, the project will win a matching grant with funds from SVN Miller Commercial Real Estate and the SVN Communities program. Learn more, and donate to the Salisbury Bark Park at www.patronicity.com/sbybarkpark.
SVN Communities supports grassroots, community-driven placemaking projects by providing a matching grant to groups able to meet their crowdfunding goal. To receive matching grant funds, eligible projects in SVN International Corp. cities can apply at www.patronicity.com/SVN. Selected projects will run a crowdfunding campaign with Patronicity aiming to hit their crowdfunding goal within 60 days. Groups should then be ready to finish their project within six months of reaching their target. Successful projects must activate a new or underused public or community space with the program giving preference to permanent physical projects.
