City hosts ten neighborhood meetings to discuss dog off-leash hours & rules

 Boise, May 7, 2013 - Neighbors who have questions about dog parks and off-leash policies are invited to join city representatives at ten education sessions in May and June.

 Representatives of Boise Parks & Recreation, Boise Police Department and the City Clerk’s Office will answer questions and distribute information in parks and preserves throughout the city.

 “We know people enjoy their pets and love exercising them. For everyone’s enjoyment of our city parks, our goal is to help explain rules, why they exist and ask pet owners to help with compliance in our city parks and reserves,” said Boise Police Chief Michael Masterson.

 “The dog off-leash areas and parks are intended to provide pet owners with accessible places to spend time with their dogs and get to know their neighbors,” said Doug Holloway, director of Boise Parks & Recreation. “We welcome the opportunity to hear feedback about our parks and policies.”

 Each meeting location offers daily dog-off leash hours approved by the Boise Parks & Recreation Commission.
