Logan invites public input on dog friendly park

Local News

LOGAN, Utah (ABC4 News) – The Logan community is invited to voice their opinion about options for dog-friendly parks Tuesday night.

The Logan Park and Recreation Department will hold a meeting Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the Logan City Hall Council Chambers located at 290 North 100 West.

During the meeting they will discuss plans for a potential one-year pilot program to allow dogs in parks.

A press release stated that the department is exploring one of two ideas. The first option is to have seven to eight dog-friendly parks where dogs will be on or off a leash at any time. The second option would be to allow off-leash dogs during certain designated hours at designated park.

According to a press release, both options would include signage and educational campaign to encourage compliance and dog waste bags. It·would also require council approval and would be reviewed after one year to evaluate success, problems, and continuation.

Those who are unable to make the meeting are asked to email comments to Mayor Holly Daines at holly.daines@loganutah.org or Russ Akina, Director of Parks and Recreation at russ.akina@loganutah.org.
