At a recent Valley Pond Townhome Association meeting (where I live), we discussed whether the Association should pay to have the City of Northfield install one or more pet waste stations (example here) along the trail in Hidden Valley Park.
The Board decided that a better first step would be to ask the City to install "Please Clean Up After Your Pet" signs to see if that solved the problem.
A couple weeks ago a City crew installed signs at the three entrances/exits to the park. Our Association cost: $54. Robbie has been stuffing pet waste bags into the holes in the signs. And people are using them.
Cool public/private collaboration, eh?
