Dogs running loose in Central Park? Councillor Meed Ward wants to give it a trial run if this is what community wants.


BURLINGTON, ON  June 12, 2012   Ward 2 Councillor Marianne Meed Ward advised the city last night at a council meeting that her Ward Advisory Committee is looking into the idea of having off-leash times for dog owners in Central Park

Dogs off leash in Central Park - if you have an opinion - speak up

The thinking is that time would be set aside during the early morning and late evening hours for dogs to run free in the park.  “We would recommend a trial run at this if this is what the community wants and see how it works out” said Meed Ward

City bylaws call for dogs to be on leashes in city parks.

It’s a controversial suggestion – but Meed Ward seldom backs away from controversy.  She wants to raise the question with her constituents and then take the response to a city council committee meeting.
