“I drafted a survey that attempts to gather data and solicit for help to determine the extent of the problem. Any options presented to the City are going to have to be backed up with numbers and narratives of significant incidents that have occurred.”

A request from your neighbor at our DISCUSS Page:

“Hello fellow Shore Drive neighbors,

I am requesting the survey linked below be distributed to in order to get more respondents. Below is a post I made on “Next Door Safety” a few days ago and have received 55 individual person responses from communities located along the Bay Beach/Shore Drive. So far the information collected in the survey is revealing. It appears most folks have strict control of their dogs on the beach, however 90% of these same folks have encountered dogs not under control and 70% of the 90% say they have had concerns about the safety of their dog or person. 10% of the 70% have had slight or severe injury done to their dog by uncontrolled dogs.

More survey respondents are necessary for this survey to provide actionable data. Not looking for opinions on what should be done. That will come after this survey data is analyzed, a committee is formed and more research is done. Looking to provide options to the City to make out beaches enjoyable for all. This is not, repeat is not, an effort to have a leash law for the beaches….”

More info about the Survey:

Here is the survey. No more posts of opinions and positions are required or desired on Next Door. If you have good intentions and are willing to back up comments with some action, please join the Committee referred to in the Survey”.

  1. This is a follow up to the post and survey on the subject of Safety on the Beach referencing the little Shih Tzu dog, Macaroni, killed on Chesapeake Beach. So far, 100 neighbors have taken the survey. Here are the results to date:

    If you missed taking the survey, here is the link to add your beach experience: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8KG897G

    Please let me know if you want to help make our beach safer for ALL. Lets keep this discussion neighborly please. This is not, I repeat not, an attempt to gather data to remove or leash all dogs on the beach. You can see by the survey, most folks are responsible. Looks like only a small percentage cause problems for the majority. There are, I am sure options that could make our beach a safer and more enjoyable experience for ALL. Best regards,
