Off Leash Public Consultation Summary
On August 22nd 2011, the Off Leash Advisory Committee presented Council with the results of the public consultation process that was recenlty undertaken by the Committee in their development of an Off Leash Program. This process built upon the Off Leash Advisory Committee Consultation Plan where a series of Open Houses were held and comments were collected primarily through the use of an Input Survey (see relevant sections below). The input confirmed strong support for many of the proposed Off Leash Areas and the associated Off Leash Program.
This information was compiled into the Off Leash Public Consultation Summary which can be accessed below. The Committee will review this input with further consideration of how the suggestions and concerns can be addressed in the development of the Off Leash Program. In the Fall of 2011, the Committee will present the final Off Leash Program to Council for their consideration and potential adoption.

Off Leash Program Open Houses & Online Survey
The Off Leash Advisory Committee of Council held a series of Open Houses in June 2011 to get feedback from the community on potential Off Leash Area policies, locations, design, development, stewardship, costs and operations. The Open Houses were held in June 2011 at the pilot Off Leash Areas in Ginters Meadow and Moore's Meadow, as well as at a number of central indoor locations in the Downtown, College Heights and the Hart. Feedback from these Open Houses was collected through the use of Comment Sheets, a Dot Map Exercise and through an Input Survey. The Input Survey was available online from June 9th to August 5th, 2011. The feedback that was received from these Open Houses will be used in the development of an Off Leash Program that will be presented to Council for potential adoption.
