Mayor Asks for Citizen Input About Proposed Downtown Phoenix Dog Park

[Source: KPHO]

Mayor Phil Godon is calling on neighbors and businesses to weigh in on a potential dog park in downtown Phoenix.

Gordon said he’s not opposed to the idea of a dog park but doesn’t necessarily support some of the proposed sites.

He’s planning to create a citizens’ commitee and is asking for input from “urban core” residents and businesses owners with a stake in downtown.

Earlier this year, the city knocked down part of the old Sheraton hotel to build a parking lot. But some residents would rather see a dog park built on that site.

Because the city owns the land where the parking lot would be built, it stands to make a lot of money from it.

Those interested in a possible nomination to the citizens’ commitee should submit an application at http://phoenix.gov/EMAIL/appbdcom.html.

 

 

Editors Note:

  • There will be a public hearing on the proposed dog park in front of the Phoenix Board of Adjustments TODAY at noon at City Council Chambers, 200 W Jefferson St.
  • Also, you can sign an online petition in support of the proposed dog park HERE.
