It looks like a permanent city dog park could be in future for Twin Falls dog owners.  During the winter the city set up a fenced in ball field at Frontier Park as an experiment to see how many residents would be interested in a dog park.  Over 150 people signed up to use the play area and many more used it who did not sign up.  Calling it a big success the Twin Falls Parks and Recreation Committee has recommended that city officials develop a permanent dog park.  The city will look into leasing or purchasing several acres of land in the northeast part of town owned by the county for a permanent location for a dog park.  The recommendation will now go to the city Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council for approval.

The Twin Falls Planning and Zoning commission yesterday voted to recommend a zoning change on 25 acres of land near the Snake River Canyon Rim for development.  The Canyon Rim Development Project would include a convention center and several retail outlets.  The recommendation will now go to the Twin Falls City Council for approval.
