Dog park supporters go to Plan B
Although having a dog park in League City is a dead issue at least for now, the League City Dog Park Association still has plenty of bark.
League City City Councilman Neil Baron said the non-profit group is meeting tonight, Sept. 29, at 6 p.m. at Starbucks, 2810 Gulf Freeway, to introduce its new officers. President Barbara Graves was elected last month to succeed Baron.
Discussions at the meeting will include fundraising for a dog park and planning for events.
Despite a decision by League City over the summer to kill plans for a dog park, Baron said he remains confident that there will eventually be a dog park in League City.
Baron said he has talked with members of the Galveston County Commissioners Court about the prospect of a county dog park. Currently, there are no dog parks in Galveston County.
In League City alone, Baron estimates that there are 50,000 dogs.
Dog parks are a positive attribute for thousands of communities," Baron said. All the cities that we compete with for economic development have dog parks. Sugar Land, The Woodlands, Pearland, and Houston all have dog parks. Why don't we?"
