Thanks Lowell & Amanda for starting this petition. It would be valuable to note that signers should also ensure that their dogs are registered with the city. The last time a dog owner approached counsel with a petition it was immediately dismissed because, while there were hundreds of signatures, only a few dogs were registered with the city (which is required by city bylaws.) They were unwilling to consider building a park when so few dogs met the legal requirements of living in the city (I think they said only 35 were registered.) Subsequently, they did make the process easier (making it a lifetime registration rather than an annual) and I think the cost is pretty minimal. They just want to ensure that dogs can be returned home when they are lost and they can protect our community from dogs that may be dangerous. I believe the cost simply covers the cost of administrating the registration... but gives our community a valuable service AND will speak volumes to counsel that we are serious about caring for the betterment of our community (which I think this park would play a valuable part of)! Thanks again Lowell and Amanda!

Last time city counsel dismissed a petition because, while there were hundreds of signatures only a handful of dogs had the necessary registration. It's a small fee... but is a necessary part of being taken seriously (otherwise counsel considers our dogs to be "illegal"... and won't build a park for unregistered dogs)
