Twin Falls Officials Discuss Land Swap For Dog Park
There could be a land swap in the future that would allow Twin Falls residents to have a dog park in the western part of town. Last night the Twin Falls City Council revealed plans for a possible swap with 2.7 acres of land owned by Twin Falls County at the corner of Blake Street North and Shoup Avenue. In exchange the city of Twin Falls would trade its one-third share of the McCoy gravel pit property west of the former St. Lukes hospital on West Addison. There will be public hearings before the deal takes place to build the dog park. Also at last night’s City Council meeting several area organizations received city grants for services that the city does not provide. The grants ranged from $30,000 dollars for the Trans IV Bus Service to $4000 to Southern Idaho Tourism. There was $100,000 dollars available in grant money and over $180,000 thousand dollars in requests from 15 organizations. Seven of the organizations received a grant.
