May 18, 2012 - City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks to host May 24 open house on the evaluation of the Voice and Sight Tag Program
The Open Space and
OSMP launched the Voice and Sight Tag Program in 2006 to improve compliance with dog regulations and reduce dog-related conflicts. The program requires dog guardians to watch a video on voice and sight control and display the “green” program tag for all dogs off leash in areas that allow voice and sight control.
“The Voice and Sight Tag Program is highly valued by many dog guardians,” said Mike Patton, director of OSMP. “The evaluation provides an opportunity for the community to explore and work together to maintain a program that works for everyone.”
The program evaluation includes background information, areas in need of improvement, potential enhancements, and a discussion of a variety of options. Some of the options evaluated include requiring proof of current rabies vaccinations, requiring demonstration of a dog and guardian’s ability to comply with voice and sight control requirements, a loss of privileges after one violation and several improved outreach strategies.
If you would like to hear more about the evaluation, have questions or wish to comment, you are encouraged to attend the open house. Those who cannot attend are welcome to read the evaluation and complete the comment form that is available on the OSMP website. After the open house, staff and the Open Space Board of Trustees will explore which program and policy changes should be recommended for City Council consideration.
