Yes, the meeting will be held at the Miller Community Recreation Center on April 26th and the Dog Ordinance topic will be on the agenda…….

 

Martha and/or Carol could you make sure that the location for April is reflected on the City Web site as it says the meeting will be held at Pine Street.  Thank you in advance.

Subject: dog park on the Parks and Rec Commission meeting

Hi and good afternoon to all,

 

The Burlington dog park group met this morning and one of the items we discussed was the dog park ordinance.  I explained that the Commission would be discussing this at your April meeting.  I wanted to confirm that this is the case and also to confirm that the meeting is on April 26 at 5pm.  The city website says the meeting is at DPW but your Parks and Rec site says it’s at the Miller Center.

 

If someone can confirm the time, place and date and if the ordinance is still on your agenda, I’d appreciate it.

 

Thanks for your time,

Karen

1. I plan on going to this meeting and staying through their discussion.  I will speak at public forum at 5pm, based on what we talk about on this email forum, and the possibility of using the South Crest area for a ward 5 dog park.  I will try to walk it and take photographs before the meeting.
Please advise if you can join me.  802-238-4213   cba...@carolynbates.com



2. The reason, after talking with Carolyn Hanson today, that the pilot ordinance did not pass parks commission at their last meeting was this:
The commissioners did not want some of the parks listed to remain on the list either as a pilot, or as a permanent list.  Oakledge,  Schumanska, 
and the Intervale are the ones they are questioning.  The waterfront park, and the park at the far north end are considered permanent parks, according to Carolyn.  The commissioners want to revisit this list, before saying OK.  This "revisit" will happen at this meeting April 26.

3. Discussion on this forum
    a.  South Crest area as a ward 5 dog park.  Pros, cons, other.  I will research out this park.  
    b.  Oakledge: do we want this to remain on the pilot program?  Who will go see this park for the discussion? 
    c. Schumanska:  do we want this to remain on the pilot program?  Who will go see this park for the discussion?  
    d. Intervale: location???  do we want this to remain on the pilot program?  Who will go see this park for the discussion?  

4. Summary:  each park should have someone summarize their findings and send them to me to take to the Parks meeting, or talk at the meeting.


Thank you.

generally speaking I think the areas in the pilot program should be left on and if removed negotiated for different areas.............I think it is important not to drop an area and not replace it with another...........
