CAN WE PLEASE HAVE LAWS IN PLACE THAT OUTLAW ALL DOGS FROM ALL SPORTS PARKS IN TOWN. ONCE THE LAWS ARE IN PLACE, HOW ABOUT SOME ENFORCEMENT. DOGS ARE ALWAYS OFF LEASH AT THE SPORTS PARK AND A LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE DO NOT CLEAN UP AFTER THEIR DOGS. THE DOGS HAVE A WIDE NUMBER OF PARKS THEY CAN USE THAT ARE NOT DEDICATED TO SPORTS RELATED ACTIVITIES. MANY INCIDENTS, WITH REGAURD TO DOGS ATTACKING / BITING PEOPLE / KIDS HAVE HAPPENED AND CONTINUE TO HAPPEN.. COME ON CINDY, JENNIFER, AND MATT OUTLAW DOGS AT ALL SPORTS FIELDS / PARKS, PUT THAT IN YOUR PLANS. THE PEOPLE WHO USE THE SPORTS PARKS WOULD GREATLY APPRICIATE IT. ITS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. YOU CANT PLAY SOCCER AT THE RIDGE, SHADOW CLIFFS, OR IN THE DOG PARKS. THEY GOT THEIR PLACES, LET US HAVE OURS, DOG FREE. THANKS.

Dear Protecting,

I don't think outlawing all dogs from the sports parks would be the answer, that is just outright mean to those who have well behaved four legged family members that enjoy my tax money that built the parks. Now if a dog attacks people then sue that family I guarantee you they wont be bringging their pets to the park after that.

There should be fines for those who do not pick up after their pets and also off leash fines just like with human beings, we break laws we either get fined or go to jail, how about sending the pet to doggie jail? But seriously banning all dogs from the park is crazy.

Well since our kids can't use the parks when it rains and we can't bring dogs, why build a new park?

Big waste of my tax dollar. Goverment should sell all existing parks to timber companies and get out of the park business all together. No where in the Constitution does it say my tax dollars must go to goverment owned (socialist) parks.

Don't you read the papers? Due to rich retirement deals negotiated by these 5, our police force is down in numbers and crime is on the rise. The last thing I want is our cops doing is "get your dog off the grass" patrol.
