Community Conversation: Dogs at Woodlawn Park

Notes from January 15, 2014

typed up by Elizabeth Erickson

About 60 people attended the meeting at Classic Foods.  All but a few live in the neighborhood, and many of those live next to the park.  Just over half are dog owners.  A few indicated they were there to learn something new, and a few said they were there to share an opinion.  About half felt optimistic about finding a solution to the problem.

The problems stated were about dogs using Woodlawn Park: the conversation mainly focused on the fact that the Park does not have an off-leash area, yet many dog owners bring their dogs there to run off-leash.  This has caused some neighbors to feel unsafe, either for themselves, their children, or their own dogs.  Another problem brought up was dog poop left on the ground.

Neighbors brought forth various ideas on creating an off-leash area, and had questions on how to have it meet the City’s criteria, which was explained in detail by representatives from the Parks Department.  The meeting ended with a handful of neighbors agreeing to meet again soon to follow up with ideas to resolve the problem.  Contact wrenpdx@gmail.com to be part of the team working on resolution. 

Below is the data transcribed from notes taken during the meeting.

Over the last several months, WNA has worked to craft new language for our bylaws in an effort to make these guiding principles the best they can be for our organization. We’ve presented the proposed changes at several meetings, heard some additional feedback and incorporated changes. As always, we invite everyone’s participation! Will you join us as we vote to adopt our new bylaws?
