Build a Dog Park in the City of Commerce!
This petition had 229 supporters
This is a proposal to build a dog park site in the City of Commerce. This dog park would be a fenced-in area where dog owners can legally and safely allow their dogs to socialize and exercise off-leash.
Benefits to the City
There are many benefits of a dog park to both the residents and the city! The nearest dog park to the city of Commerce is in the Arts District, almost 8 miles away. A local dog park offers the residents of Commerce a nearby place to socialize their dogs. Studies show that dogs are less territorial off-leash in open areas, leading to a reduction in dog conflict.
- Dog parks improve public health by encouraging the pick-up of dog waste.
- Waste pick-up stations encourage pet owners to clean up after their dogs as opposed to when dogs are walking on sidewalks.
- Dog parks provide a community space to post information about dog health, veterinary services and more.
- Dog parks relieve the City of legal responsibility for the actions of dogs with clearly posted owner liability signs.
- A dog park reduces the likelihood that dogs will be loose in other park areas where they can interfere with bicyclists, rollerbladers, and skateboarders.
