Establish Off-Leash Hours In Evanston IL
Evanston has too few dog parks, but fencing in dedicated space isn't the answer. The sensible solution is to allow well-behaved dogs off leash in Evanston parks in the early morning (5-8 am). This approach works in Portland, Oregon and Brooklyn, NYC. It can work in Evanston. When dog owners gather in parks, they pick up litter, keep an eye on the neighborhood, and form relationships that strengthen the community. We should encourage this behavior, rather than ticketing responsible citizens. Join us in asking Evanston city government to establish off-leash hours for Evanston parks.

Save Poinsettia Park
The City of Carlsbad has approved a reckless plan that overbuilds Poinsettia Park. It adds "Pickleball" Courts, A "Speed Soccer" Arena, an elaborate playground and a Dog run in the middle of the whole park. None of these have been demanded by the nearby residents. The City has NOT sufficiently gauged the desires of the neighboring residents and is misappropriating the funds. Residents will be impacted as there is ALREADY a parking shortage that will only get worse with these changes. Also, the noise will dramatically increase with the new activities(barking, fighting, pickleball racket). Finally, the proposed dog park is planned for the center of the park. This will consume that the last area where you can just relax is the true sense of a "park". People of all ages cherish this space because every other area is already designated for a specific activity. We demand the City reconsider the whole plan, including putting the dog park on the periphery so people won't have to walk as far and cross over the park. Please immediately share your feelings with the council members by contacting them at the information below.

Install water fountains for dogs at Underbridge Dog Run, Forest Hills, NY
Underbridge Dog Run is one of the bigger dog parks in the Forest Hills/Flushing area. Many dog owners come here because of the convenience of parking, location, and how close it is to the Flushing Meadow Park. This dog park has lots of potential but most people complain that even the smaller dog parks have some kind of water fountain for dogs. Also, every park for kids have a water fountain so with the growing amount of dog owners in Queens, we should also have water fountains for dogs. It takes a lot of supporters and work from the city and Parks Department to get this approved since a pipe needs to be put in in order to get this done, so please help sign and share this so the Parks Department can understand how important this is! Please help petition to get our park approved for water fountains!

Costa Mesa: Extend Bark Park Hours
Costa Mesa residents and visitors to Bark Park wish to extend it’s operating hours daily to 10pm. Furthermore, we wish to change the maintenance day to either Tuesday or Thursday. Currently, Bark Park offers Costa Mesa residents the benefit of visiting at night with park lighting and operating hours until 9pm. However, some residents are unable to arrive prior to 9pm due to late work schedules and personal conflicts. Residents wish to further take advantage of the lighting and facilities offered at Bark Park by extending it’s operating hours until 10pm. This one additional hour is still within the city’s curfew and prevents some residents from having to visit alternate facilities such as Irvine’s Central Bark to take advantage of it’s extra hour of availability. As the only nearby dog park that also offers park lighting, Irvine’s Central Bark sets a favorable precedent with a 10pm close time. Furthermore, the residents of Costa Mesa understand the necessity of a maintenance day for Bark Park. The hard work and services provided by the City of Costa Mesa on Wednesdays are greatly appreciated. However, to meet the physical needs of their canine friends, residents often must seek out other dog parks outside the city on Wednesday to visit. As previously mentioned, Irvine’s Central Bark is the nearest comparable facility that some residents must defer to. However, both Central Bark and Bark Park are closed on the same day of the week. The residents of Costa Mesa propose that Bark Park reschedule maintenance days to another day of the week, possibly Tuesday. By doing so, residents who own dogs that require daily activity may still visit a nearby open park on maintenance days.
