Concord in brief

Concord Township Council established formal rules for the new dog park Tuesday night, and they also canceled and modified some events for the rest of the summer.

Council canceled the annual Senior Expo that had been scheduled for October and changed Community Day from an all-day affair to only an evening concert followed by fireworks. The concert begins at 6 p.m. Community Day is held the Saturday after Labor Day. Both actions were taken due to the pandemic. Also because of the pandemic, the township’s emergency declaration of March 17 was extended to Sept. 4.

The established rules and regulations for the dog park include limiting the use of the park from dawn to dusk, and not allowing sick, aggressive dogs or female dogs in heat. No puppy younger than 4 months may enter the park. All dogs must be accompanied by a human of at least 16 years of age. Owners must clean up after their animals and have the dog on a leash to and from the park. Use of the park is at the animal owners’ risk and owners are legally responsible for their dog’s behavior. They must be in the park with their dog, have it under voice control, and have a leash ready at all times. Dog treats and human food are prohibited in the park.

The next two summer concert events are scheduled for 7 p.m., Aug. 6 and 20, at the Smithbridge Park Pavilion.

Council recognized Eli M. Waldman for earning the rank of Eagle Scout. For his Eagle Scout project, he cleared and modified a hiking trail behind Concord Elementary School, which included installing trail markers, clearing an area for a new trail, and improving an existing trail.
