SARTELL, Minn. (KNSI) - After much debate, the Sartell City Council put their stamp of approval on plans to create a dog park. 

The seven acre space, slated to be created in Pinecone Central Park, was approved on a 3-2 vote.

Dissenting voices included mayor Joe Perske and council member David Peterson. Both men expressed doubt that the space is appropriate for a dog park.

City Planner Anita Rasmussen says the shape of the park is long and narrow to accomodate running, and will feature leash-on and leash-off areas.

The effort has been led by the group Sartell DogPAC, who aim to raise $150,000 to complete the park.

According to city statistics, there are 1,000 licensed dogs in Sartell.
