Attn: Dog Owners

The first of what is likely to be a series of Logan Circle public discussions about dog parks will take place at tomorrow night's CDC meeting (6-8, Washington Plaza Hotel). The meeting agenda seems to suggest that no one particular aspect of the proposed dog parks will be addressed. So if you want to suggest sites, protest sites, or volunteer to be part of a citizen action group, this is probably your meeting.

Other issues to be covered at the meeting include the creation of two parking spaces at 934 N Street, presentation by developer Giorgio Furioso, and discussion of a plan to form a committee to work with the Office of Planning. (On what the committee will be working is unclear. The agenda states that the goal is "promoting workable regulations to implement the regime.")

I wish I could have given you all more time to plan to attend the meeting, but I just received notice of the agenda on the Logan Circle listserve today. I think that Mike Bernardo is doing a great job of running the CDC meetings well, but it would be nice if we could get more advanced notice of scheduled meetings an agendas. I would also like to see more detailed agendas; items like "presentation by George Kassouf" aren't really helpful.
