Dogs-at-Play-Dog-Poop-SignThe Park and Recreation Commission will hold a Public Hearing on Thursday, September 17, 7 p.m. at the Mt. Vernon Recreation Center, 2701 Commonwealth Ave. to receive public comment on a proposal to remove the designation of three unfenced dog exercise areas because they present potential safety issues for dogs, as well as pedestrians, bicyclists, and others using adjacent streets. The unfenced dog exercise areas under consideration are 1.) Ft. Williams Parkway at Dearborn Rd; 2.) Southeast corner of Braddock Road and Commonwealth Ave.; and 3.) W. Timberbranch Parkway and Parkway Terrace. The Commission also welcomes comments regarding the status of other designated unfenced dog exercise areas
