More than 60 days ago, I appeared before a meeting of Comox council with a request that at least one municipal park be designated as an off-leash area where I could legally throw a ball for my dog.
I am asking that a decision be made before the end of another 60 days.
I have read letters in the local paper from many different supporters and one big NIMBY.
I will again point out that we have specialized facilities for all types of activities in our township. An off-leash park can only encourage more people to get outside and have some fun with their dogs.
D.S. (Scotty) Campbell,
Editor’s note: Mayor Paul Ives responds: “Thanks for your e-mail Mr. Campbell. Since we haven’t had any regularly scheduled council committee of the whole meetings during July and August, we weren’t able to hear from staff on your request. I would anticipate that we will be getting a report from staff in September or October regarding your request. In the meantime, we will be sending out our quarterly newsletter to residents later on this week, which will contain a request for any further feedback/comments on this issue to be submitted through Town hall.”
