Ordinance for Dogs

I am looking to find out where I can find information about whether or not a dog can go to the bathroom on the parkway area that is owned by the city. I had a confrontation with my neighbor a couple of weeks ago, and he informed me that I cannot allow my dogs to go to the bathroom on his parkway since he maintains it.

I am looking to find out where I can find information about whether or not a dog can go to the bathroom on the parkway area that is owned by the city. I had a confrontation with my neighbor a couple of weeks ago, and he informed me that I cannot allow my dogs to go to the bathroom on his parkway since he maintains it. I informed him that as long as I was cleaning up after my dogs, that I was within the law. This morning at 4:00, I hit his property and he came outside to harass me. (He must have cameras?) He didn't say anything, just stood there to make sure that my dogs weren't going to the bathroom on his part of the parkway. It seems he has this want to try to intimidate women, as all the women in my area have had issues with him. One even has a restraining order against him. Can someone help me out with this? I am going to the police station today to file a harassment report and have contacted my attorney. Just wonder if anyone else has had this issue?

  • The parkway is cleaned up by owners but the parkway is city owned....he cannot tell you you cannot let your dog's go..he can post signs asking not to....especially if you clean up...suburban rules are different

  • I'm interested in this too. I always thought you had to walk so your dog is on the parkway side and clean up afterwards. Some one in the area has a large sign on their parkway saying basically no dogs allowed. Please share what you learn.

    The parkway is owned by the city. Residents have no ownership rights. That being said, when I see that someone has a nice little maintained garden in their parkway, I don't let my dogs go there just to be courteous. But if it's just grass, then yes, I do and always clean up afterwards. Sounds like this guy has some issues.

Hour later I call police - I mean, my storm windows are down, can't hear my television. Another hour I call again. Two hours later I call again. Go in shower and can still hear both the music and the guy jabbering on the mike. No police response? I guess I have no right to peace and quiet. It's 11:05pm and I'm ready to tear my hair out! What the hell?

  • HoneyBadger resident

    I have two sons-in-law that are CPD and they respond to noise disturbances - usually within 30 minutes and both are stationed in two different higher crime districts. I made FOUR calls within 6 hours. The music finally stopped without police intervention at 12:30AM. my head is still pounding. Maybe the guy having the party is a cop, knows a cop, was a cop. I think what aggravates me more than the lack of police response is the party throwers lack of concern for neighbors.

  • You would think that the police department would have deputies riding around for non-emergency calls. The quality of life issue is overlooked by the police department, it seems, in our area. We all have one or two obnoxious neighbors who make noise, burn plastic, yard waste, etc, but get away with it and make our lives miserable because their is no attention to issues like this that drive people away from the city. Are you listening, Rahm?
