Sioux Falls Group To Install Pet Waste Stations Downtown

Sioux Falls Group To Install Pet Waste Stations Downtown
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Downtown pet owners have a dilemma: where do their four-legged friends go? Now they have an answer thanks to a $1,300 city grant. Residents of Sioux Falls should get ready to see a new kind of garbage can downtown.

This project's goal is to keep downtown safe and clean for everyone, including pets.

"We really would like people to know that downtown Sioux Falls is pet friendly and resident friendly because we'd like to see that residency grow you know, another thousand in the next couple of years, we'll see," Head of the Downtown Sioux Falls Residents Association Brienne Maner said.

With an increased number of people living in downtown Sioux Falls, there are more pets, and everything that comes along with them, in the area.

Cindy Palleschi lives in downtown Sioux Falls with two dogs, and she's looking forward to the stations, which come equipped with waste bags and garbage cans.

"You can see little evidences of people that are not picking up, and I think that if we get the new little waste stations that will be a big help hopefully to people that are walking their dogs that don't have the bags along," Palleschi said.

A recent economic development study finds that about 2,200 residents are living in the downtown area of Sioux Falls.

"A lot of those buildings that are being erected are providing more residential opportunities, which therefore brings more dogs downtown and we need more spaces for those dogs to relieve themselves," Sioux Falls Economic Development Coordinator Adam Roach said.

The downtown Sioux Falls Resident Association groups plans to have the waste stations installed in five locations by the end of August.

Some of the first places to get the pet waste stations will be Fawick Park and along Phillips to the Falls.
