West Somerville Dog Park Delayed Until 2011

City officials have decided to delay plans for an off-leash dog park in West Somerville until September 2011-despite support from numerous alderman and dog owners. This decision comes as a surprise as an area at Dilboy Stadium had already been founded by Alderman Bob Trane, supported by Alderman Rebekah Gewirtz with only logistical research remaining to be completed to finalize the space to be off-leash friendly. Recently, the community path has been the focus of orders submitted in by members of the board as dog attacks in both Ward 5 and 6 have been filling up Somerville headlines making the need for an off-leash space all the more pressing and the decision to delay it all the more confusing.
