Canandaigua Councilmember Renée Sutton said she has fielded calls from constituents in her 4th Ward “flinching” when they drive by the entrance of the new city dog park.
Councilmember David Whitcomb said he overheard a conversation among two people at City Hall, complaining about a narrowly avoided crash when driving by.
A brown cut-out sign of a dog, which is supposed to alert motorists on Buffalo Street of the Canandaigua Canine Campus. The park celebrated a soft opening last November.
For some drivers, however, it’s all in the eyes of the beholder. Some think it’s a real dog, out on the loose, prompting folks to slam on the brakes.
“A lot of people think it’s a deer at dusk,” City Manager John Goodwin said Tuesday night at a City Council environmental/parks committee meeting.
This dog may have had its day, as the sign may be moved and soon be replaced with a new sign, according to Goodwin.
The new sign will be more in line with signs at other city parks, Goodwin said.
