Now since the passing [dog park] votes, the city has been slapped with repaying over $4 million dollars in redevelopment funds to the State. Are we still going to move forward with this unnecessary expense? I urge the Council to take another look, use sound judgement, and please reconsider.
Where is all the bacteria-filled waste going to go that will run-off from this park? Right into the creek, where a very fragile Eco-system exists. Today there are Mule Deer and other animals that live in that creek bed and are regularly spotted on that hill. The creek has such a low water flow it can’t support all the added bacteria. Read about Dog Park Environmental Issues; what this same scenario has done to other streams and creeks. The bacteria runoff from the dog parks laid waste to them.
Here’s a recent Irvine dog park injury, infection and amputation reported in Sunday’s OC Register. What’s that going to cost the city? I honor and respect this man for his courage and positive attitude but blame the dog park for dogs being allowed to run lose and attack each other. This dog park is a ticking time bomb in cost overruns, financial liability, and ecologic damage. Defuse this bomb before it blows!
