As Anthem’s dog park project moves forward, Anthem Community Council announced at its August meeting the selection of a design-build team. Valley Rain Construction, specialists in building dog parks and other parks in the Valley for 40 years, was selected as the contractor to work with the design firm EPG Planning and Landscape Architecture.
At the monthly ACC meeting Sept. 26, a more detailed rendering of the draft concept plan will be presented for public discussion. A preliminary cost estimate is also expected, ACC Community Executive Officer Neal Shearer said at the Aug. 22 board meeting.
However, it won’t be until January when the board approves a guaranteed max price to build the park, to be located along Meridian Drive, east of St. Rose church and Merrill Gardens. The project is expected to be completed in late 2019.
