NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — One Norfolk neighborhood is one step closer to getting a dog park.

City council on Tuesday unanimously approved a memorandum of agreement (MOA) between Norfolk and the Meadowbrook Dog Park Association, Inc.

Neighbors in the Meadowbrook neighborhood have been raising money to construct the park where the old Meadowbrook School was located.

The city carved out one acre for the park — but neighbors had to raise $26,000 for a fence. In just six weeks, they raised $34,000.

That property also includes a park and basketball courts.
