Happy National Dog Day from The Courier! Dogs all over Beverly Hills and their owners are celebrating National Dog Day by praising Councilmember Lili Bosse for getting the City one step closer yesterday to a real dog park in Beverly Hills.
On the verge of derailment to a certain bureaucratic delay, Bosse (mamma to Teddy the Labradoodle) took on Community Services Director Steve Zoet and challenged him to follow the direction of the City Council to discuss details about the park – not re-hash the park itself at yesterday’s Recreation and Parks Commission meeting.
Bosse gently steered the meeting back on track, and the Commission voted to recommend the location at Alden and Foothill, to remain open the same hours as La Cienega and Roxbury parks (8 a.m. to 10 p.m.) and to be open seven days a week.
“I believe we are all very comfortable with what transpired yesterday, and are eager to move forward with the rest of the details needed to get this project on board,”said Commission Chair Simone Friedman.
The Commission will be holding a special meeting on site September 8 to walk the property and discuss details, such as entrance/exit of the site. “I know how anxious residents are to see this park open, I too am anxious, but I feel that we want to make well thought out, educated decisions before we send our recommendations to City Council. I know we all take our jobs very seriously, and only want the best for our community.”
