And here's how you can help.

There's a public effort underway by the same people who started the Grand Blanc dog park to have a dog park built in Burton.

The dog park would be on the property of Our Risen Lord Lutheran Church at 4040 Lapeer Road. The church has already agreed to the park but the initiative must now go to the City of Burton Zoning Board of Appeals.

The park, which will cost about $10,000, will cover a half-acre and will NOT use public funds. So, per usual, private donations are appreciated.

If you'd like to help, you can call Kris Johns at 810-348-4437 or email to You can also sign the online petition HERE.
