Placentia is asking residents for input on a possible dog park in the city.
A survey asks if the city should build a dog park, where would be best and if small and large dogs should be separated in different enclosures.
The City Council has asked the Recreation and Parks Commission and the Community Services Department to research locations for a dog park, including at existing parks.
“While the project is in the preliminary stages, we are excited to go out into the community and solicit feedback from our residents,” Councilwoman Rhonda Shader said. “The City Council is committed to addressing the needs in the community and continues to create opportunities to keep Placentia a pleasant place to work, play and live.”
Five parks: Samp Park, Parque de los Niños, Koch Park, Parque del Arroyo Verde and Tri-City Park are listed on the survey. Residents are asked to rank the parks in order of preference and are also given the option to suggest other locations.
“Many factors are being considered at this time, including review of parking needs at the site, proximity to existing homes and open park space,” said Sandra Gonzalez, Placentia’s community services director, adding the survey is being distributed at community events, such as Movies in the Park and Concerts in the Park, as well.
About 100 surveys have been completed, but there is still time to make a suggestion.
The survey also is available from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays at the Community Services Department’s front counter at City Hall, 401 E. Chapman Ave.
Results are expected to be shared with the Recreation and Parks Commission at its October meeting.
