Seven months after Los Angeles County officials agreed to build a Crescenta Valley dog park, they have yet to settle on who will construct it.
Now roughly a month after work on the much-anticipated park was to begin, officials this week said they are deciding whether the county will build the park or solicit bids for the project, after the contract with the firm originally slated to do the work wasn’t renewed for issues unrelated to the project.
Imee Perius, a spokeswoman for the county Department of Parks and Recreation, said the ground-breaking has been delayed “because we haven’t completed our evaluation of the most effective way to complete the project.”
“We came upon some issues in contracting, and at the moment we are looking at all our options,” she said.
In October, the county committed $300,000 for a 1.5-acre dog park at the northwest corner of Crescenta Valley Park after supporters sent more than 2,000 petitions to Supervisor Mike Antonovich.
