interested in a full time dog run for awhile now to cater to those who cannot make off leash hours or who have playful dogs who thrive with more exercise off leash It looks like the Myrtle Ave Brooklyn Partnership is organizing a community meeting around the idea of adding a dog run under the BQE I m in favor the space there is underused so why not be creative about its potential Props to MARP for their forward thinking Here s the info I have from the group Please forward this email to any dog owners in the area who might be interested in discussing this and sharing their ideas This should be a quick meeting to gauge interest in this idea If the community displays to MARP that we like this idea they will likely back this plan and help it become a reality So please spread the word
