According to recent studies, over a third of all U.S. households have one or more dogs. Armed with this fact, community parks and recreation departments are becoming more likely to include dog parks. Dog parks can act as a gathering spot for pet parents. They bring their pets to the park to get exercise and socialize with other pets. While the dogs are playing, community members are more likely to form relationships, participate in conversation and exchange community information such as events, doctors, and veterinarians.
Also, as leash laws continue to become increasingly restrictive, dog parks are a way to let dogs run free without penalty to pet owners or damage to private property. Dog parks also promote safety because the pet owners are not walking on busy streets. Public canine parks allow dogs to get ample off-leash exercise and social activity with other animals. When dogs get the adequate physical and mental exercise they need, humans notice a decrease in the level of troublesome behavior from their dogs which will benefit society as well.
With a dog park, you'll have healthier pets and people to improve the quality of life in your town and neighborhood.
Councilman Adams has asked Lee Sudduth to identify possible location(s) for a dog park and to share suggested designs for discussion.
Councilman Horsley will initiate a discussion to add the following language to conditional uses allowed in UV: “Research and development facilities including laboratories for product development and product testing."
