Dear Superintendent Dean,
SFDOG submitted an official public comment on the GGNRA DEIS for a new Dog Management Plan. It was hand delivered to the GGNRA at 3:45 pm on Friday, May 27, 2011. The DEIS is so poorly done it does not meet the standards required of it by NEPA law. The SFDOG Comment includes examples of the many problems with the DEIS, highlights the extraordinary level of bias against dogs in its assumptions and analysis, and argues that it is so fatally flawed that it cannot be fixed. SFDOG also has links to comments from other groups and individuals here.
If you have not already done so, please sign the online petition opposing the GGNRA's plan to kick people with dogs off of 90% of the land where they currently can walk with their dogs off-leash. Pass this link on to all your friends and ask them to sign, then pass it on to others. Not restricted to SF Bay Area residents. Anyone can sign.
If you have signed a paper version of the petition, you do not need to sign the online one.
