The second project idea is for our animal friends and the general environmental health of our neighborhood:
#2 Getting the Dog Poo situation under control. My vision is to have dog bag stations along all of Lineberry Drive, perhaps even Sierra Drive and Trailwood Hills Drive – the 3 main streets in our area. The dog stations create awareness and provides opportunity. Each community could sponsor at least 2 stations and provide a) refill bags and b) volunteers to keep the stations full of bags, throughout the year.
I think as a community, this is something that can be more efficient if we can order as a group and coordinate efforts around an entire campaign. So maybe we can sit down as a group, look at a map, and identify the area’s where this makes sense -or- what area’s stink the worst!
I think having a master plan is key, then each neighborhood can complete their own part. We also may be able to get a grant from the City of Raleigh to help with costs. Note: some area’s like Camden Crossings and Sterling Townhomes already have efforts like this established, we should learn from them and add existing dog stations to the master plan.
