WMA Press Release on the Dog Run Issue

For Immediate Release

WMA Seeks Westmounters’ Opinion on Dog Run Location

Westmount, Friday 26th September 2014 –
The Westmount Municipal Association is asking all Westmounters to have their voice heard on the potential location for Westmount’s third dog run. In a study, conducted by Hodgins and Associates, 8 potential sites were identified including the former dog run located at the N/E corner of Landsdowne and Ste. Catherine St W., which had been closed during construction of the new Westmount Recreation Center.

The WMA is urging all residents to weigh-in on this issue by completing our survey that can be found at www.wma-amw.org. The survey also includes a map showing the locations identified in the Hodgins study. The WMA board feels that all Westmounters should be surveyed on this important issue, as Westmount Park exists for and is funded by all residents and taxpayers.

A majority of respondents to the WMA survey so far have indicated a strong preference for a dog run to be located outside the park, while the Hodgins study only identifies three in-park sites as potential locations for Council’s consideration.

The WMA feels that all 8 potential sites should be considered and feel that your voice is important in this selection process.
