Parks and Rec Staff Agree -- Finally -- To Propose Using Non Park Land for Dog Park

I am relieved to learn last week that Parks and Rec Staff have finally agreed that using a portion of the existing maintenance yard -- and not the parcel nearer the nature center and community gardens, would be MUCH better than using existing park land.

As you can see from the map above, this is the area I proposed so that it could be connected with the Animal Care Center to the right of the property.

I do not however agree that 0.3 acres of the parcel below should be taken for parking. Simply let people park at the Animal Care Center or at the Nature Center...don't take more land for this project.

By using the maintenance yard parcel we will only have to fence one other side (3 sides are fenced).

Thank you staff. I believe this is a win-win for everyone.
