• San Marino Community Chimes in on Idea of Lacy Dog Park


    The San Marino Recreation Commission Monday night received the opportunity to hear community input regarding a potential dog park that would be located south of the tennis courts at Lacy Park.

    San Marino Eagle Scout candidate Brent Barker opened the meeting talking about his proposal before a crowd of about 30 people at the Barth Room at Crowell Public Library.

    His idea would include adding fencing, leveling uneven surfaces and adding benches to the area, which now serves as a maintenance yard, for a three-month trial basis. At that time he would leave it up to the City to determine if the park can be permanent.

    Residents were not too keen on the idea, however, asking about who would monitor the area or who would enforce people who don’t take responsibility of their dogs.

    Scott Daves supported Brent’s idea, saying that the teenager should be commended for the proposal. Many Monday night applauded the Scout’s courage, standing before an audience with definite opinions of their own and speaking before a Commission that would constructively dissect his plan.

    Those who were not in support of a dog park at Lacy also said it was not necessary, that it was impractical and that it’s better suited for areas not so close to residential areas, explaining that such parks make more sense in New York City, where there are more apartments and apartment dwellers.
