The Crescenta Valley Dog Park is back on track.
Los Angeles County Parks and Recreation officials say they expect work on a 1.5-acre off-leash dog zone in Crescenta Valley Park to begin in August and be completed in March 2012.
The idea for a park started with residents forming the group CV DOGS — Community Volunteers for Dogs Off-Leash Gathering and Socializing — and gathering a petition with 2,500 signatures from dog-park supporters.
Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich supported the proposal, and after a community planning meeting in May 2010, work was expected to begin on the $300,000 project in March. But a contracting snafu caused the county to push the deadline back.
Imee Perius, a spokesman for the county parks department, said Monday that the Board of Supervisors is expected to approve a construction contract July 19. Once the contract is in place, workers will begin building the 1.5-acre park in the northwestern corner of Crescenta Valley Park.
