DEWITT — A group of DeWitt residents are pursuing approval from the city to open up a fenced-in dog park. While DeWitt has a few different parks, none of them allow dog owners to let their pet off the leash to roam free. The Dog Park for DeWitt, Mi group is trying to change that by meeting with the city and township. “It is refreshing to have a group of citizens driving the idea rather than the government. A good public-private partnership would only improve the quality of life here,” DeWitt Charter Township Manager Rod Taylor said.
