Dog Park in Belmont?

I just heard from a friend that Happy Dog is asking for signatures for a dog park in Belmont. Does anyone think it will even get considered by City Council? We are taxed enough! Who is sponsoring this stupid request?

Dog parks are typically found in urban areas where there are a lot of aprtments and condos and people don't have yards, so I'm a bit surprised by this.

That said, they are also usually placed in not very desirable locations like next to railroad tracks and airport runways.

They are also very easy to create and maintain. All that is needed is a piece of land already owned by the municipality that isn't being used and some chain link fencing. The dogs tear up the grass and pee on all of the bushes, so there is very little maintenance.

I don't own a dog, but in the sense that it would give people who don't have children a place to go and create a sense of community, I'm all for it.

Let us know what you find out when you go.

Do they have a particular plot of land in mind?

Just my 2 cents, but this would stand a much better chance of being implemented if it were a combination of private donors purchasing the fencing and volunteers clearing the land and intalling the fence.

Good Luck!

Actually, we will wait until Jax closes, and then rent that as an indoor dog park!

I don;t care if they have a dog park but what I WOULD like to see is a city ordinance for no more than ONE dog in a household in the city limits.....and NO dogs that continually bark. My neighborhood sounds like a kennel..and smells like one in the summer time.

Move.. You have that right :)
I am not sure if you know this or not but dogs bark... It is a way to communicate and I would much rather listen to a barking dog then the nonsense you are speaking of above..

We dont need no doggie park. we just sh$t and piss where we want to.

And dont like steppn in every other dogs sh$t neither. And dont like gettn a flea on me neither and if and when i want to socialize i do it when i feel like it. its just a excuse for the fat dog owners to just let there dogs roam afround and sh$t and piss and not pick it up neither. thats why we got a overweiht/obesity problem in belmontwide.

Last we heard there aint no money left unless it comes from a private secter. stowe is to cheap which leaves happy dog cafe. and with inflated salary of chief frankie and the theft of us taxpayers money from a city employee stealin over a two year span. Cant help but wonder why it took our "stellar" accountants two yrs to find that the njumbers dont match up.

In conclusion, just barely have enuf lights for Christmas and the town of belmnont is corrupt as it gets. Why nobody lost there jobs?????

Good question aint it????

I really do want to understand what you are saying but I just cannot make any logical sense out of what point you are trying to make. I am afraid I do not speak the same "language" as you so if you would like your point to be heard do you think you could go back and write an educated response so it could be read and understood? I am not sure I know what "enuf" is? "Why nobody lost there jobs" I also have a real hard time believing that you are a "taxpayer" like you claim above...

You are one miserable human being. What a sad life you must lead. I feel sorry for you. Maybe you and Just 4 U should have a night out on the town together. The fresh air might do you some good.

The land allocated for the skate park beside the Police Dept would make a great dog park. It' the right size, centrally located and let's face it, kids just don't skate board anymore they are too busy playing Xbox to leave the house.
