Thank you to everyone who joined me at the Parks and Recreation Commission meeting yesterday. The Commission voted 7-0 to approve the site I had recommended in the "tree farm area" just south of Spring Street and adjacent to the Animal Care Center.
Now comes the hard part -- raising private money to construct and maintain the dog park. The Friends of the El Dorado Dog Park will host a fundraiser in the 5th Council District Good Neighbor Park on December 3rd. I encourage people to stop by and support the event 9 am to 2pm. The park is located at 2800 Studebaker Road.
Am glad to read that 4th District Councilmember Patrick O'Donnell -- who was unable to attend the Parks and Rec Commission meeting and who has recently become involved on this issue -- supports this site.
It took a long time to find a site that was suitable and to work out most of the concerns that have been raised. I appreciate all the time Parks and Recreation staff have spent with me and others on this issue.
Community Gardens Concerns
A number of people raised concerns about how the community gardens floods and receives run off from the surrounding area. I am placing an item on the council agenda that will request that Parks and Recreation department explore what can be done to fix this problem.
