I have very fond memories of my first dog, a cocker spaniel, when I was in grade school. Our family also owned German shepherds, mutts & Great Danes. Owning and caring for dogs taught my brothers and I many life lessons of responsibility and caring for others, whether human or dog!
I visited the Genesee park pilot site.
I would review the inventory of activities and spaces that are currently available throughout the city. I would move to ensure that there is a balance of areas dedicated to the many activities that citizen's desire for city living.
As a council member, I voted for the off-leash sites program. I would be open to exploring possible sites on capitol hill and the possibility that the current site be considered for a permanent site.
I would review participation usage within the overall parks operational and maintenance budget. Given that off-leash areas have proved to build community, deter crime, and provide a place for voting, taxpaying citizens to recreate with their family and pets, where would you support siting additional off-leash areas?
I believe it would be very important to have locations throughout the City. When you are elected to the Seattle City Council, will you vote to support off-leash areas?
I voted for off-leash areas when I was on the council and would have no problem with continuing my support.
Sorry this response is so late.
As stated above, I have supported and voted for off-leash sites since the pilot program. I believe it is an urban amenity that should and could be provided to our citizens in our recreation services.
