Off Leash Dog Park in Hickory Hills?

The City of Hickory Hills is investigating the establishment of an off the leash dog park. The City is looking for input from all residents, whether they have a dog or not. Please give us your input by taking the brief survey at the link below. 

Hickory Hills Dog Park Survey

Hickory Hills needs your input – Tell us what you think!

The City of Hickory Hills has partnered with the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) to create its first Comprehensive Plan and establish a vision and land use strategy for the City. The Plan will explore how the City can better understand and address these changing times, such as a changing retail environment; transportation mobility innovations; an aging population; evolving housing preferences; different work and commuting habits; and an increased focus on environmental issues and sustainability.

The purpose of this first Hickory Hills Community Survey is to hear your thoughts regarding the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and challenges of the City of Hickory Hills. You know Hickory Hills best!

The survey should take roughly 15 to 20 minutes to complete, and you can skip over questions at any time. Survey participants who are registered to the Hickory Hills site can save answers and return to the survey at a later time. We appreciate you taking the time to help make Hickory Hills the best it can be!
