Dog park gets name recommendation

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - You may remember Audrey Ulrich.  Ulrich and her two year old son were killed in a tragic car accident just a few weeks ago. Tonight her husband and friends addressed the Richland Parks Commission.

Their goal is to get the city to name the dog park at Badger Mountain in memory of her.  Although the commission unanimously supports the name recommendation they say they must follow the standard naming process.  Audrey's husband, Matt Ulrich, says he understands. "The one that I recommended was Possibilities Park, in memory of Audrey Ulrich. Actually in memory of Audrey Lee Ulrich. The reason why I picked that name was because she would have liked the planned words," said Ulrich.

He says his main goal is to get the park finished. The next meeting is scheduled for next month but the commission hopes they can speed it up.

The family is planning a public memorial service for Audrey and Raphael on November 21, 2009.
