Following numerous calls to the Parks and Recreation Services Department and the Police Department about dogs off leash on trails and walkways and in City Parks, Police Department volunteers conducted outreach to dog owners in public areas. During the first half of February, volunteers passed out the City of Napa Dogs Regulations, Parks and Recreational Areas information that was prepared by and provided by Parks and Rec. The informational portion of this program has concluded and the Police Department is now preparing to make contact and potentially issue citations to owners who choose to not comply with the Napa Municipal Code sections pertaining to dogs in City parks. The handout on regulations can be downloaded here. The City's goal is to see dog owners comply with leash regulations so that all residents using recreational areas can continue to have a positive experience for all.
