Savage’s own council, which hopes to partner in the project, won’t take the matter up till after the Three Rivers people do.
Park reserves have limits on development, and new dog parks are sprouting up elsewhere in Scott County, so there are some policy decisions to make.
Open houses are set for early next month at fire stations in Shakopee and Burnsville. In Burnsville’s case, it’s an event that last year drew 1,200 people.
Shakopee’s open house is at Fire Station 1, 2700 Vierling Drive E., from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 5.
The city encourages folks to see what a station is like, meet firefighters and learn about fire protection in the home.
Burnsville’s is Oct. 10 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Fire Station No. 1, 911 140th St. W., with parking in the lot at Kohl’s.
The theme is preventing kitchen fires, with demonstrations of what can happen, usually from unattended cooking.
There are also tours of the fire station, fire engines and ambulances; interactive demonstrations of a fire extinguisher; CPR, and a chance for kids to try on firefighting gear. Kids also get a free helmet.
