County denies dog park near airport; advocates remain hopeful for future options

RHINELANDER - Oneida County won't allow a temporary dog park to be built on an empty piece of land near Rhinelander's airport.

Instead, business experts want to use the 21-acre lot to attract a new business to the community. They think the land is just too valuable to temporarily use as a park.

"[The] 21 acres of land is zoned light-industrial," says Roger Luce, the Executive Director of Oneida County's Economic Development Corporation. "It is fully serviced with city sewer, city water. It has natural gas running past it, and its fiber optic is right out front on the street."
