Wellesley Gardens Dog Park
Owners and community members,
We, the members of the Dog Park Committee, are petitioning the Board to install a dog park for community use. One of the requirements for consideration is a show of support from 1/3 of the owners. We are establishing this petition to gather signatures to demonstrate support of a community dog park. While the petition can only be signed by owners as a show of interest, other community members are more than welcome to assist the committee in planning and obtaining the support necessary to move forward (such as passing the petition along to your landlord so they can sign it).
number of dogs out walking this spring, it's clear our community is already
animal-friendly. However, the committee believes there's considerable
benefit to creating a fenced-in, dedicated space away from traffic for dogs to
run and play. This would allow dog-owners to associate and socialize
while ensuring the dogs in our community have a safe space to get sufficient
exercise - resulting in calmer, happier dogs and less disruption to bike riders
and walkers, etc.
Although we have not finalized a location, the current proposal would be to locate the dog park in the Northeast corner of the current green space - beyond the barriers, at the end of Hampshire Lane. If you are an owner, and support a community dog park, please sign this petition. Please include the address of your unit in the comments section. If you are an owner with concerns, and would like to follow and/or participate on the committee, please contact me either by email, phone, or text (information below). If you are an otherwise identified community member, and would like to assist in planning, please contact me, as well.
Thank you to everyone for your consideration and support!
