Hearing planned for suggested off-leash area
July 30, 2012 · 11:52 AM
Commissioners for the Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on proposed options for an expanded off-leash dog area at Eagledale Park at their meeting this week.
The hearing is 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2 in the Strawberry Hill Mini-Gym at Strawberry Hill Park.
Several alternatives have been suggested for a possible expansion of the off-leash dog area at Eagledale Park. The ideas include various configurations for expanding the current off-leash area up to and over the top of the hill.
Following a presentation by parks staff of the options, the public will have a chance to offer input.
Eagledale Park is one of several sites that are being considered for use by off-leash dogs, and the hearing is a follow-up to the May hearing on proposed off-leash dog areas at Battle Point Park and the July hearing on off-leash dogs in parks/trails.
No official board action will be taken at this week’s meeting.
Written comments will be accepted through Aug. 6.
