FRIENDS OF THE EVERGREEN DOG PARK COMMUNITY MEETING, Tuesday, March 21st, at 6pm, Church of the Hills, 28628 Buffalo Park Rd., Evergreen
JeffCo Open Space (JCOS) will be closing most of our beloved dog park on April 4. After JCOS reached out to Friends of the Evergreen Dog Park and asked us to manage what is left of the dog park, we developed a plan to create a unique, sustainable, model park.
At a meeting on Wednesday, JCOS reversed itself and told us that we could NOT manage the park. Director Tom Hoby did tell us that JCOS will hold us all accountable for any infraction of their rules. If JCOS’s four areas of concern—water quality, road issues, neighbor complaints and site degradation—aren’t resolved to their satisfaction, JCOS will punish us all and close the entire park.
Hoby also said that as soon as JCOS finds a new site, they will close our current off-leash dog park forever.
This is unacceptable.
The board of Friends of the Evergreen Dog Park is holding a community meeting to ask for your help and ideas to fight JCOS.
Please join us!
