Regarding possible closure of the Elm Street Dog Park: Politics, disputes and hurt feelings aside, the true victims here are our dogs.
Going to the dog park is one of life’s great joys for our canine companions. Lack of volunteers to replace the Five Cities Dog Park Association may be due to a lack of communication. I suggest that the city of Arroyo Grande invite the public to a forum where the association can explain responsibilities and what is expected of leading a new volunteer group.
In other words, publicize the forum and educate potential volunteers. Possible closure of the dog park is sad and represents loss of a cherished place due to our human actions.
