PINELLAS PARK – The Community Redevelopment Agency on July 26 approved construction of a K-9 kennel at police headquarters.

The facility will consist of a shelter and a training area for both regular K-9s and those training to sniff out narcotics.

Chief Doreen Thomas and Lt. Kevin Riley of the special services division appeared before the agency.

Riley said the dogs will be trained twice monthly while regular K-9s will be trained once each month. Up to three dogs will be housed in the area at any given time.

Councilwoman Sandra Bradbury voiced concern that a large shady oak tree would be razed to make way for the pound. Riley ensured her that the facility would provide the animals protection from the sun and heat.

In another matter the agency approved plans by Subway Restaurants to reduce the amount of parking spaces at 4666 Park Blvd. from 24 to 17.

Kevin J. Hubbart, the chain’s director of development, said the new building will be used as corporate offices and not be open to the general public.

Councilwoman Patricia Bailey-Snook said she had heard that training classes would be held at the facility, thereby possibly creating a parking problem. Hubbart said no such classes are planned. He said construction on the Park Station-like building would begin as soon as possible.

Plans to construct a sidewalk at the revitalized Pinellas Park Mall at U.S. 19 and Park Boulevard, were discussed.

City Manager Michael B. Gustafson said original plans to build the handicapped-accessable walk were scrapped because 16 trees would have had to be displaced. New plans call for the walk to be located within the mall boundaries, but easily accessible from public areas.
