Albany Looking at Leash Laws for Albany Waterfront

The city committee on the waterfront is one step closer to creating rules for the Bulb after a unanimous vote Monday night. Committee Meeting Minutes

“Essentially, dogs would have to be on-leash up through the parking lot, beach and neck, according to the proposed policy. Starting just west of the neck, on the piece of land known as the Bulb, owners and walkers could shift to a voice command system.

A motion about the draft policy included the creation of a two-page map to define the leash regulations for dogs on the waterfront; the requirement that walkers carry a dog walker permit either from the city or from the East Bay Regional Park District; and that dogs declared “vicious and dangerous” would be banned from the area; that there will be a clearly defined off-leash area on the Bulb.”  Emilie Raguso/Albany Patch

Albany Bulb Dog Policy

Published by under Dogs,Waterfront Planning

Albany Bulb Dog Policy

An Interesting read on the recent Albany Waterfront Committee meeting.

Lots of discussion about controlling the dogs at  The Bulb, which centered on how to license dog walkers, or dog guardians, as well, committee members also talked about how to determine which areas should require leashes; how to protect certain areas from dog-induced wear; and how to make sure the public supports the plan.

The new policy (download the draft of Albany’s Waterfront Dog Policy), could ultimately be folded into the Parks and Recreation Department’s dog ordinance.

Some public comments made at the meeting included:
one woman saying she doesn’t take her 14 year old dog to the Bulb because it is too “chaotic”;

and of course, as always, there is suggestion that “fenced-off area for pets could be helpful in ensuring community members and Bulb visitors respect the ordinance.” (More fencing?!)

And another asked why they weren’t looking to the Voices to Vision report that cost thousands and thousands of dollars; noting that along with the other studies done costs now total up to the millions spent on these studies.
