    8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

    Mt Moriah Church

    Do you want a gated dog park in Dickinson Square Park?! Whether you answered yes or no, your opinion and support matters. Which is why we are hosting a town meeting to discuss and present our survey data.

    Survey data you ask?

    If you haven’t already filled out the survey, please do so:

    Organizers will be presenting survey data to representatives of Parks and Recreations who will also want to hear the thoughts of residents. Which is why, WE NEED YOU to come out and show your support! The will of the community needs to be represented, so please take time out of your day and join us!

    One Response to Dickinson Square Dog Run Community Meeting

      there are LOTS of people who walk their dogs in dickinson square everyday who really want this and have no idea this is being discussed/organized. I am there with my dog a few times a day (for over a decade) and saw/heard nothing until a flyer was posted on a board a few days ago. Get flyers and humans out talking to humans ASAP or the naysayers like the “friends” of Dickinson Square will be out with dogmatic opposition in numbers (they have posted an opposition flyer already). I have been through this in other neighborhoods. If you want this to happen, you can’t just rely on internet posts.
      You need to go and talk the people who are actually at the park with their dogs. There are lots, and they aren’t necessarily following sites like these or Facebook or twitter. What about a physical petition, with names, addresses and whetther or not the signer is a dog owner–just like voter registration.

      One of the things the “friends” are saying is that the survey has collected names from out of the area. I’m not sure what that means, but without some kind of transparency, that is an argument they can float. OK==keep up the good work and see you tomorrow.
