Conflicting uses continue to dog leash-free park

Hamilton, ON, Canada / AM900 CHML

The search continues for a compromise that will keep both users and neighbours happy at the leash-free dog park in Dundas.

A lawyer representing one of the neighbouring residents, has appeared before the public works committee asking that a 50 foot buffer zone be created between her property and the dog park, along with the planting of trees and vegetation to create a visual and sound barrier.

Matthew Di Vona says noise and intrusion are major issues for his client.

Committee members have also been presented with a 271 signature petition from users of the dog park, supporting its continuation.

Carl Fraser stresses that they use the park, like the park and try to be respectful.

The issue has been referred to staff for a response to the concerns presented by the neighbour.
