Letter: Don’t move the dog park
8/18/2012 1:05:00 PM
It has come to my attention that the Cottonwood City Council is considering moving our beautiful dog park from its current location to a new, yet-to-be determined site closer to multiple residences.
In our current economy, I am surprised that this item, and the cost that will be incurred, should be near the top of the list of ways to spend our limited funds. When I was told that it perhaps would be necessary to “find” tax monies in order to pay for the necessary land, fencing, and other charges of re-location development, my concerns grew.
I reside in Cottonwood Ranch. I bicycle or walk early in the morning and I often hear the dogs at the humane society barking. Sound carries early in the day. I have never complained. I also hear planes take off from the airport nearby. I have never complained. I can even hear the helicopter at the hospital on occasion.
These are the sounds of life “in town.” I understand that one person has complained, albeit quite loudly (even with the aid of a bullhorn), about the occasional barking of a happy dog at the current dog park location. Is this sufficient reason to distress multiple formerly content residents who now fear all of the ramifications of the park being moved?
I would like to “register” my serious unease at the sensibility of this project. The locales under consideration are additionally of interest to me, so I will make every attempt to attend the Sept. 11 meeting.
