Greer Park Softball Field as Temporary Dog Run Area
Original post made by Herb Borock, Professorville, on Dec 14, 2009
The City Council has not yet set a policy for dual use of park playing fields as temporary dog run ares, has not even received a recommendation from its Parks and Recreation Commission on this issue, and has not selected the parks where such dual use areas should be located.
It seems premature to implement a decision to accommodate a dual use dog run in Greer Park prior to a policy being adopted and prior to choosing a location for such dual use, especially when the only current dog run areas are all in parks south of Oregon Expressway and when advocates of dual use areas include residents who live north of Oregon Expressway.
I wonder if the staff and Council would place an item like this on the Consent Calendar if the location of the dual use area was in El Camino Park or Eleanor Pardee Park.
