I have some exciting news about the possibility of constructing a dog park on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
At the next regularly scheduled Rancho Palos Verdes City Council meeting next Tuesday night November 17th at 7:00 pm at Fred Hesse Community Park at 29301 Hawthorne Blvd , the city council will be reviewing a staff report on improvements proposed for both Grandview Park and Lower Hesse Park in Rancho Palos Verdes which would include a fenced dog park for both large and small dogs. ( see staff report at http://www.palosverdes.com/rpv/citycouncil/agendas/2009_Agendas/MeetingDate-2009-11-17/RPVCCA_SR_2009_11_17_12_Conceptual_Designs_Hesse_Grandview1.pdf ) . Mayor Larry Clark, in support of our previous presentations to the city council for a dog park on the Peninsula, has been instrumental in proposing a dog park at these two locations and has requested that as many dog park supporters as possible attend this meeting to show community support for the dog park component of these plans.
Your attendance at this meeting is very important and may be instrumental in getting a dog park constructed on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
I had previously sent out an email regarding a meeting of the Rolling Hills Estates Park and Activities committee also scheduled for next Tuesday night at 7:30 pm at which meeting proposed locations of a dog park in RHE would be discussed, and which I asked everyone to attend. Given the importance of the RPV City Council meeting discussed above, I would encourage you to attend the RPV City Council meeting instead. We will continue to encourage RHE to pursue a dog park within their city limits including our previously recommended location of the former Palos Verdes Landfill site.

My husband and I also attended the City Council meeting of the City of Palos Verdes Estates last week, and although the council members have indicated that they do not see a viable location for a dog park within their city limits, that they would consider adding this issue as an agenda item in a future meeting of the city council to discuss what they can do to support the construction of a dog park elsewhere on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
We are starting to make some real progress on getting a dog park on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, and hope that you will show your support for this by attending next Tuesday nights RPV city council meeting.
