"I, the undersigned, hereby petition the Phoenix City Council to create a public dog park on the northern half of the block formerly filled by the Ramada Inn Phoenix Downtown, a 300 ft x 300 ft property at 401 NORTH FIRST ST., PHOENIX, AZ 85004.  The parking lot currently planned to fill this property will add to Phoenix' heat island effect and will encourage more and excessive downtown automobile traffic.  Our property values, and the desirability of our community, are based on both the current and potential 'pedestrianism' of downtown.  A new 90,000 sq. ft. parking lot is not needed and will reduce the value of our property and all downtown properties.  A dog park balancing a smaller parking lot will mitigate these effects."

 

Here are a few quick facts to note:

~There are 14,000 excess parking spaces in our downtown.

~There are over 800 dog owners within walking distance of the site in question.

~Phoenix's urban core already experiences an urban heat island effect of 5-12 degrees (depending on the study).  Asphalt parking lots only make that, and subsequently our EPA-sanctioned air quality, worse.


Also, if possible, please support "Puppies, Not Parking" at the hearing on Thursday 11/4 @ noon (City Council Chambers, 200 W. Jefferson St.)
