Petitioning Councilman Waring and 12 others

Please create a dog park along 1st St that's walkable for downtowners.

The majority of downtowners live in condos and apartments, and therefore have no yards. We are also one of the only major cities without a downtown dog park. We need the amenities that will grow our community.

A walkable dog park is very much needed to meet the needs of both current and future residents. The dog park will also help surrounding small businesses by increasing foot traffic -- but only if placed within walking distance of downtown residents. The currently-proposed 5th Ave location across the highway doesn't solve this and doesn't meet downtowners' needs.

Instead, placing the dog park on First Street, south of the highway, puts it within walking distance of the vast majority of downtown residents, would bolster local businesses, will connect Hance Park to downtown's activity, and can be done within the current streetscape project for a very minimal cost compared to other solutions!

Please partner with the community to create a Downtown Dog Park on First Street that will help downtown grow into a thriving urban environment and which will serve the needs of its residents and businesses.
