Parking tops concerns for Janesville dog owners
People who use the Palmer Park dog exercise area are telling Janesville city officials they want to see ways to keep their dogs safe from traffic, and increased parking.
The dog owners discussed different ways to accomplish those requests at a neighborhood meeting Tuesday night. A majority of those at the meeting want the dog exercise area to remain informal, but some said they would pay a fee to include some upgrades like fences. One portion of the trails is about 20 feet away from Palmer Drive, and some are afraid to use that area in case their dogs run out into the road.
The city does not have plans to change the park, but will form different options incorporating ideas from the meeting by the fall.
