Animal Activist Tina Sinatra has started a Change.Org petition in favor of the dog park as part of a campaign to show the City Council the groundswell of support for the dog park.
Beverly Hills needs a Dog Park, and the City has finally found a location that will work.
Every city surrounding Beverly Hills has dog parks; Beverly Hills is still without a single one.
For ten years, the City has searched for the appropriate location. Last year, after much study and deliberation, the corner of Alden Drive and N. Foothill Road was selected.
After several public meetings, the Recreation and Parks Commission and Community Services are ready to move forward with their recommendations to the City Council to finally create a much-desired dog park for the City of Beverly Hills.
The new dog park will be on City-owned property in an industrial area 500 feet from residential uses with ample parking. It is across the street from two historic veterinary hospitals and the Amanda Foundation. It is the perfect location.
But one special interest group threatens the dog park and we need your support.
Please sign this petition and forward this email to as many fair-minded and dog loving people as possible.
Beverly Hills deserves a dog park!
Thank you for your support.

The Beverly Hills Recreation and Parks Commission will conduct a special meeting at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, October 13, to hear public comments regarding the proposed dog park at Foothill Road and Alden Drive.
The City has posted the agenda for the meeting on its website, including 47 letters in favor of the dog park and 11 against it.
Also included are a series of uncivil letters from Rabbi Pini Dunner of Young Israel of North Beverly Hills and attorney and congregant and attorney Mike Baum to City Staff, including Director of Community Services Steve Zoet, Assistant Director of Community Services Nancy Hunt-Coffey, City Manager Mahdi Aluzri, Recreation and Parks Commission Chair Simone Friedman, in which the Rabbi accuses the City of being less than thorough in vetting his demands.
The Courier encourages supporters to come to the meeting and express their support for the Commission and staff, and their hard work in bringing this to fruition.
Please send your comments and letters of support to firstname.lastname@example.org
