The City Council on Monday voted to look for new venues rather than Oso Viejo Park to build a dog park, after residents voiced concern about having a dog park at the Oso Viejo Park site.
The residents and Council are working together to find a new, better solution for the dog park to benefit the community as a whole. As such, the Council directed City staff to look at locations including Lower Curtis Park and the Felipe-Arroyo site, which is a City-owned vacant lot on Felipe Road.
Staff will perform conceptual work for the proposed sites before the Community Services Commission reviews the matter and hosts a public hearing.
Mission Viejo joins other South County cities such as Laguna Niguel, Laguna Beach, Laguna Woods, Rancho Santa Margarita and San Clemente in offering dog parks for community enjoyment.
