Subject: Off Leash 5/29/12
- Off leash dogs have caused too many safety issues and thus enforcement of Denver’s leash law must be achieved;
- Even the best voice controlled dog can become distracted and thus out of control;
- Total compliance with the leash law is unrealistic;
- For first time offenders, warnings should be issued unless the off leash dog owner’s behavior warrants a ticket;
- Repeat offenders must be issued a ticket;
- Coordinated efforts of Park staff, animal control, Park Rangers and police officers will achieve the best results;
- Educating dog owners that increased enforcement efforts will start on June 1, 2012 needs to be worked on;
- Denver now has 10 dog parks available for those that desire to run their dog off leash;
- Denver’s population continues to increase and thus more park land is needed for its residents.
It was alarming to hear, before the new enforcement efforts have even been implemented, that it is impossible to achieve total leash law compliance and thus other options will need to be considered in the future such as allowing off leash during certain times of the day within Denver’s parks. All drivers do not stop at a red light intersections. Instead of working to accommodate this illegal behavior, Denver has chosen to install cameras at intersections and issue tickets to offenders. Enforcement has been strengthened, not reduced.
- Restore Cheesman Park’s legacy through historic preservation;
- Create an accessible park with a pedestrian focus;
- Create a safe and enjoyable park experience for all park users;
- Reduce crime, vehicular volume and speed, noise and pollution.
