South Portland Public Library considering nearby property

From Kevin Davis, Director of South Portland Public Library:

"Looking for feedback: what do you think about the library exploring the idea of acquiring the old gas station property that sits at the corner of Highland Ave & Cottage Rd and converting it into nice public green space - a continuation of the library's lawn?

We see a huge upside for the library, in terms of visibility, but are mainly in love with the idea of turning a plot of land that has been industrial for many years into a more pleasant public space for the community.

Possibilities that have already been floated:

  • Clearing the land and making a park-like space, with new walkways leading to the library.
  • Using a portion of the property to 'soften' the turn onto Highland from Cottage. Adding a library/community information sign (think the Mill Creek information sign).

Summer Concerns for Dogs....Fireworks, Going to Camp and more!

Summer Concerns for Dogs....Fireworks, Going to Camp and more!

Summer is upon us and, if you have a new puppy or older dog, there are a few things to consider when planning for fun in the sun.  Here are some tips and suggestions to consider when including Fido in your plans...

Taking Your Dog to An Outdoor Event:  Backyard BBQs, block parties and get-togethers with family and friends sometimes include an invitation to “bring your dog!”  If you choose to do so, be sure you plan ahead so that things go smoothly.  Always consider a public event as a training opportunity for your dog.  Wear your treat pouch and load it with delicious tidbits your dog loves.  Keep your pup on a leash so you have control over him at all times.  Here at our puppy school, we teach our customers to step on their puppy’s leash when people approach.  This way, the pup can’t jump on people who want to interact
