WESTON, Conn. -- The Weston Planning and Zoning Commission voted down an application for a dog park on Davis Hill Road at a meeting on Monday night, according to the Weston Forum.
The commission rejected the proposal by a 5-2 vote, determining that the 3.5 acre dog park on the town-owned Moore property was not an appropriate use for the site, the Weston Forum reported. The decision could be overturned if the Board of Selectman decides to hold a town meeting about the proposed dog park and a majority vote goes against the Planning and Zoning Commission decision, according to the Weston Forum.
Some members who voted against the proposal said the town should hold a town meeting so that people can have their opinions heard and questions answered, the Weston Forum reported. Others said they thought the idea of a dog park was a good one, but that the location was not ideal, according to the Weston Forum.
The effort to create a dog park had been led by dog owners who said they would fund the majority of it, while it was opposed by neighbors to the property, the Weston Forum said.
A decision has not yet been made on whether or not to hold a town meeting on the issue.
