The city is moving to create a dog park and park advisory board that would be in charge of establishing an off-leash dog park with access for owners as well as their pets. The board would have to decide how the park should be designed, and what areas of the city it should be in.

A new park has been selected for development in Monte Vista, where a city ordinance prohibits dogs from running off-leash.

The City Council heard from the public in April about the potential new off-leash park. In recent months, a citizen group has been working to find the best location for a park, and on Wednesday, the council voted unanimously to establish a dog park advisory board that will help develop the park and design a park where dogs can run off-leash.

There is currently no off-leash park in Monte Vista.

The City Council heard from the public in April about the potential new off-leash park. In recent months, a citizen group has been working to find the best location for a park, and on Wednesday, the council voted unanimously to establish a dog park advisory board that will help develop the park and design a park where dogs can run off-leash.

The council voted to approve the formation of the board, whose charter was attached to an ordinance for the creation of the park. The city will issue a Request for Proposals to design the park, and the city would decide whether to award the contract based on the best proposal, as well as financial considerations, such as the amount of money the city has set aside to build the park.

"What it is, is a group of neighbors that are coming together and want to create a dog park, and do it in an environmentally safe manner," city staff sd.

If the city decides to build the park, the board would make sure it is designed safely and well for dogs and their owners, as well as the other users of the park. The park would not only be designed to accommodate off-leash dogs, but also to be dog friendly, such as having benches and trashcans that are dog-friendly.

While it would be open to dogs of all breeds and all sizes, the group would prioritize dogs of smaller sizes, because the group wants to encourage small-breed dogs, such as Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes. It would also limit dogs to specific areas of the park, so that dogs can run off-leash in some areas, but also not run off-leash in others.

"If we build it, this is what it would look like," sd council member Scott Johnson.

The board will also set certn rules, such as how many dogs can run off-leash at a time, how long each area can be off-leash, whether dogs should be walked on leashes, and other types of regulations.

"If this ordinance is followed, then it will be an incredibly important step to make sure the dogs can be safe and healthy and live out their lives in a healthy manner," sd board member Chris Riepl. "It also would help to show how we can work together to make it safe, both for our animals and the people that come here."

The board sd it does not want the park to become a popular destination for dog walkers, but rather to create an area where people are actually walking their dogs.

"This is a park for our dogs. When people are walking their dogs, it will not be overwhelming for them," sd board member Mary Smith.

With the group's design plan for the park, the board will be able to start talking with potential companies to have the park built. The board hopes to have the park built in time for spring, with completion of the park in early fall.

"This is going to help the whole community," sd board member Karen Harkenrider. "And we want to make sure that this is a beautiful, safe place."
