Op-Ed: ‘Untruths’ versus ‘facts’ about dogs in Montini

By Bob Edwards

Lisa Summers’ letter of June 13, opposing dogs in the Montini Preserve, contained many untruths.

Here are the facts:

Being a preserve does not “bind Montini to an elevated level of protection.” As with all conserved open space, its conservation easement simply requires safeguarding its identified conservation values.

Montini is not Jurassic Park. Its conservation values are those of a working ranch bordered by vineyards, hillside residences, ball-fields, paved roads and a city of 11,000, where households have more dogs than kids.
