Land trust seeks dog park proposals

The Nevada County Land Trust is seeking proposals from local nonprofit organizations and agencies for the development and management of a canine recreation park honoring the late Alfred Salter and Clinton Lee.

Salter bequeathed 36 acres on Bitney Springs Road to the Nevada County Land Trust in 2003. An avid dog lover, Salter’s intent was for the property or the proceeds from the sale of the property to be used for a dog park. Based on input from the community, the Nevada County Land Trust is seeking proposals that outline the following possible opportunities:

– Development and management of a canine recreational park at the Bitney Springs Road property.



– Development and management of a canine recreational park at another location using the net proceeds from the sale of the property.

– Use of the net proceeds from the sale of the property to benefit local animal welfare activities.




Interested organizations and agencies can obtain the request for proposals from the Nevada County Land Trust office. Proposals must be submitted to the land trust by May 31. An advisory committee comprised of land trust board members and the public will make recommendations to the land trust board of directors. The land trust board will make a final determination at its June 27 board meeting.

The Nevada County Land Trust was formed in 1991 to promote voluntary conservation of our natural, agricultural and historical resources for a lasting community heritage.
