Start the new Wells Branch dog park project by October 2017

This petition made change with 147 supporters!


The Wells Branch MUD Board has indicated that they will not start work on the new Willow Bend Dog Park until late spring, early summer of 2018. This means at least another year or more without an adequate dog park in Wells Branch. This is after the MUD's 2014 Master Plan had a new dog park as the #3 priority in Wells Branch. The top two priorities in the Master Plan have already been completed. It is time for the new dog park project to begin right away (October 2017) so that we don't go another year having to take our dogs to a retention pond. Please support this petition to let the Wells Branch MUD Board know that Wells Branch is a dog friendly community and we want the new dog park project to start right away. Not just for us but also for our dogs!

The District Manager has indicated that the MUD will not start the Willow Bend Dog Park project until at least early Spring/Summer 2018 time frame. The District Manager believes that the MUD and their consultants do not have the capacity to handle another project. If we wait until Spring/Summer 2018, it will be 2019 before the Willow Bend Dog Park is completed and we will have to suffer through another year at the retention pond dog park.  That means another year with no running water, limited shade, inadequate/unsafe parking and every time it rains, stagnate mosquito-infested water within the park.  

In addition, the MUD Board has cancelled the 2018 Spring Wells Branch Dog Fair!  Please let the MUD Board know that Wells Branch is a dog friendly community and we need the new Willow Bend Dog Park as soon as possible.  No more waiting!
