Offering Thanks to Princeton Council For Support of Dog-Friendly Endeavors

To the Editor:

This Thanksgiving week, Princeton’s dog owners and the Princeton Dog Park Alliance want to offer their (belated) thanks to the Princeton Council. Last month, the Council unanimously passed an ordinance to establish future dog parks, launch a pilot off-leash program in Quarry Park, and plan for a temporary dog park in Community Park South.

We want to thank Councilwoman Michelle Pirone Lambros and Council President Leticia Fraga, who had productive discussions with the Alliance. And we especially want to single out Councilwoman Mia Sacks for her leadership in bringing the ordinance to fruition. In addition to offering our applause and thanks, the Alliance stands ready to work hand-in-hand with the municipality on these dog-friendly endeavors. Dog parks are great for dogs and great for their owners. They help build community, which is another thing for which we can be thankful — all throughout the year.
