Dear Friends of Estella, Kimber and Walnut Grove Park Neighborhood Off-Leash Areas ("NOLAs"),

IMPORTANT - ABOUT GRASS AT YOUR
Neighborhood Off-Leash Area ("NOLA")

We spoke with CRPD, and believe we now know why CRPD has been so opposed to restoring NOLA grass. And we have a plan to resolve their concern! We believe a key concern for CRPD (if grass is restored) is having an orderly process for getting any complaints about the grass to CRPD; the plan includes that. Next step is to show CRPD that NOLA users agree to follow the plan if NOLA grass is restored.

To show that, we made a very simple and fast survey. It is extremely important for EVERY NOLA user to complete and return the survey! This includes people who do not use their NOLA now, but would if grass is restored.

The survey form is below. Responding is quick and easy. Please read the survey carefully -- it has the plan's details, so you can choose "agree" or "disagree." A plan focus would be an orderly process for getting complaints about grass to CRPD; all the plan details are below. Then please (unless you already completed a survey) fill in the requested information, type your initials in the correct column to show if you agree or disagree with following the plan if CRPD restores NOLA grass, and send it all back by "reply" Email to: ConejoFriends@gmail.com.

The more NOLA users who complete and return a survey agreeing with the plan, the better our chance for getting grass restored!

Please Take a Moment to
READ, COMPLETE and RETURN the SURVEY TODAY!
Please write back if you have any questions.
Thank you -- we will keep you updated!
Sincerely,
Laura Beth Heisen
President, Conejo Off-Leash Areas Friends, Inc. ("COLA"), an all-volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) organization

CONEJO NEIGHBORHOOD OFF-LEASH AREAS (“NOLA”)
GROUND COVER SURVEY
Please Read, Complete, and Email to: ConejoFriends@gmail.com

Do you accept and agree to the following, if Conejo Recreation and Park District (“CRPD”) will install grass at the NOLA where you go (Kimber, Estella, Walnut Grove Park), and provide appropriate water, maintenance and periodic refurbishment for the grass?

(1) ACCEPT that, in the small NOLA area used by many dogs, it is possible that the grass may not survive or may become otherwise unsuitable for the NOLA;

(2) AGREE to closing the NOLAs for up to six months in order for the grass to be first established;

(3) ACCEPT that, during certain weather, or with heavy use, NOLA grass may become muddy, brown or bare spots, or the NOLA may need to close temporarily;

(4) AGREE that -- if necessary -- the NOLAs can be closed periodically (but no more than once a year) potentially for up to two months to refurbish the grass;

(5) AGREE that, once the grass is installed, I will direct all of my concerns and complaints about NOLA grass to the NOLA’s designated volunteer for the particular NOLA to which the complaint relates, or to COLA, but I will not direct my concerns and complaints about NOLA grass to CRPD. The NOLA’s designated volunteer or COLA will compile NOLA user concerns and complaints about NOLA grass and present them to CRPD; and

(6) AGREE that, if CRPD does install grass in the NOLAs, and provides appropriate watering, maintenance and periodic refurbishment for the grass, and the grass nevertheless does not survive or becomes otherwise unsuitable for the NOLA, then I will not complain if the grass is removed.
