RPV City Council will revisit the issue of allowing dogs on Rancho Palos Verdes Beach

 The Rancho Palos Verdes City Council will revisit the issue of allowing dogs on Rancho Palos Verdes Beach during the April 3,  2012 City Council Meeting at 7:00 p.m. at Hesse Park located at 29301 Hawthorne Blvd. Possible actions could include  modifying or rescinding the previous action to initiate a pilot dog beach program in fall 2012. 

The public is welcome to attend the meeting and provide testimony or provide written comments by email at and or by mail at 30940 Hawthorne Blvd., Rancho Palos Verdes, CA 90275.



While I am in favor of an off-leash dog beach, it is clear that some type of regulation of hours may be needed to effectively deal with parking issues,  pollution, etc. that have been raised.  The concerns raised by local neighbors of the RPV dog beach underscores the need for a well designed public off-leash dog park on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.  The high usage of the RPV dog beach clearly shows the demand that dog owners have for a place to run their dogs off-leash.




Palos Verdes Peninsula dog owners need a dog park to exercise their dogs.  A dog park also serves a strong social purpose as it enables other dog owners to get out and meet each other . Those people who have physical disabilities and find it difficult to work their way down the existing paths to the dog beach, should also have a place that is easily accessible to play with their dogs.  A dog park would also reduce the usage of the dog beach if there was another location available to exercise their dogs.
