Public Meeting Regarding Oakley Dog Park Proposal Debrief

Couldnʹt make the recent Public Meeting to learn about the proposed Dog Park (held January 14th), but interested in learning what happened? In a nutshell, we reviewed the conceptual plan with the attendees. The plan proposes the development of two acres, adjacent to the Nunn Wilson Park and would include a double‐entry gate, benches and shade, human and dog drinking fountain, waste disposal for doggies, adog park pond (water feature play area), and agility equipment. The space would be mostly turf or grass and be fenced off in two sections: a section for little dogs and another for all dogs. Other amenities that will be added to the park include restrooms, a picnic area, and 25 additional parking spaces.

We also took note of concerns and suggestions from attendees which will be evaluated as the project proceeds. While we are applying for grants, we still need to secure funding for this to materialize. For the most part the majority of attendees were supportive. Some of the neighbors had concerns about the traffic impact, which we will be addressed by our Engineering Staff whether or not this project happens.
