Mt. Lebanon needs a safe dog park
PLEASE HELP SUPPORT A NEW MT. LEBANON DOG PARK:We would like you to join us by signing this petition in support of Commissioner Kelly Fraasch's proposal to add a Mt. Lebanon community dog park along Cedar Blvd, on the southern edge of the Mt. Lebanon Municipal Public Works area.
A large sum of funding is set aside from the last Recreation Bond issue fordevelopment of the Robb Hollow recreational area. We think that itis important to see a portion of this funding be used to create a community dog park on the property. Here are just two of the reasons:
#1Our community quality of living will be enhanced by creating a designated recreation space for resident dog owners to take their friendly dogs to play outdoors. Currently, Mt. Lebanon does not have any space available for licensed dogs to be enclosed and run off-leash while supervised by their owners.
#2A Community Dog Park along Cedar Blvd. would buffer and visually soften the industrial look of the Public Works area from the road.We believe a Dog Park with green space in this location will give a face-lift to this high traffic entrance to our community from Gilkeson Road.
Moving forward the Mt. Lebanon Commission will need to ensure that ourdog park can be maintained and run privately or with little impact to taxpayers.
