MONROE - A group of citizens have asked for community support in their endeavor to create a 2.63-acre dog park in the north industrial park. A dog park was one of the goals of the recently adopted Monroe Comprehensive Plan. One of the people looking to install the community space is alderman Jeff Newcomer, who said the lack of a dog park within the city was noticeable after he had lived near St. Louis and could visit a sprawling green space with Ruby, his 7-year-old Old English Bulldog.
