Pacific Street Open Space Off-Leash Hours
We are a group of Cambridge residents who would like to work with the city and with our neighbors to establish limited off-leash hours in the open space on the corner of Sidney and Pacific streets. We recognize that this shared public space is a limited resource, and is used both formally and informally for a variety of purposes. That said, the space is under-utilized during certain hours and at certain times of the year. We would like to work with the city to identify specific times of day during which the space is under-utilized, and to ask that the city allow dogs to remain off-leash in the space during those times. (Presently, dogs are permitted in the Pacific Street open space on-leash at all times; however, this does not serve the same purpose as an off-leash space.) We suggest that off-leash hours be designated in the morning, and in the late afternoons on days when no athletic events are occurring. We are flexible as to the specific hours, however, and hope to work with the city council and our neighbors to establish times that work for everyone.
Once i confirm we are on the agenda for Monday, May 2, i will send an email out to everyone with the confirmation.
Thanks again and Power to the Paws!
