Will Dogs Be Allowed in Byrd Park?

In June, I was pushing to see dogs legalized in Byrd Park, but the issue stalled at City Council, got postponed and now there's a public meeting. I just got this email from Marty Jewell's office. If you've ever considered walking your dog around the lakes in Byrk Park, you should show up to this meeting and make your voice heard. Personally, I'm not asking for leashless access. I just want the cops to leave me alone as long as I'm cleaning up after my dog.

Here's the announcement (RSVP may be a good idea):

Hello All:

The Byrd Park Round house has been scheduled Wednesday, August 20, 2008 6:00 P.M. to discuss the Dog leash issue for Byrd Park.

I appreciate your assistance in notifying members of your respective groups who may have interest in this issue.

We apologize for the short notice, but please contact me to confirm your attendance at the number below or email back.

Thank you,

Francine P. Young
Council Liaison
5th Council District
