The city of Columbus’ Department of Recreation and Parks is meeting in hopes of passing an ordinance requiring dog owners to keep their pet on a leash in most city parks. If the ordinance is passed, the city will then build dog-specific parks around the city. While many dog owners say the ordinance and new parks are unnecessary, city officials say the changes will make Columbus a model for cities across the country.
