Ask county for dog park

May 08, 2010

For all the open space in north Glendale and La Crescenta, that residents have had to pack up the pooch and drive miles to surrounding cities for a dog park has, rightly so, frustrated local pet owners.

Now, after several years, the grass-roots campaign to establish a local dog park appears to have worked. Los Angeles County officials plan to unveil an initial proposal for the amenity at Crescenta Valley Park at a May 27 public meeting.

This will be the first major milestone in the long battle to get a dog park established, so it’s incumbent upon those frustrated pet owners to attend the meeting en masse.

If anything has been proven over the years, it’s that tenacious campaigning works.

Take, for example, the Foothill Boulevard design standards, or the recently minted La Crescenta library.

None of these would have happened were it not for a group of dedicated residents pushing the agenda through government bureaucracy.

Now it appears the dog park has gained the support of county Supervisor Mike Antonovich, and with vocal proponents from surrounding communities and other elected officials, there could very well be an enclosed place to unleash our canines soon.

Attend the meeting, voice your support. This is the push over the hill that dog owners throughout Glendale and the Crescenta Valley have been waiting years for.
