JOEL ON DOGS
I'm a dog person and know that dogs are loved as members of many families. Dogs are good for kids, seniors and our soul. They bring neighbors together and help build community. We need more shared, open space for families and responsible dog owners to safely play and relax together. We can also be good stewards of the environment without overly restricting where people and pets can go in our parks. San Francisco is an urban city of 800,000 people, which means the foremost mission of our parks should be recreation and outdoor access for everyone.
