According to the staff report for the Tuesday meeting, adding access for dogs to existing parks will require little investment -- only environmental documents and some signage.

Building dog runs will be a longer-term project, requiring review of the site plans and environmental documents, as well as the construction costs of fencing and other parts of the installation, the documents state.

The commission meets at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the , 100 N. Calle Seville.

The parks under consideration for dog access include:
