"City" piece on a new Off-Lease Area for dogs in Portland being proposed in the city's East Deering neighborhood. The site, consisting of about 45 acres, is a city-owned landfill that is no longer in use. The proposal is still in the early planning stages. If approved, the project would be the city's second off-leash dog park. Jim Northrup, co-chair of Portlanders Organizing Off-Leash Canine Habitats (POOCH) and a member of the city's Off-Leash Area Committee, estimates the East Deering park could cost around $35,000. POOCH members are seeking private donations and corporate sponsors. On May 18, the group will hold POOCH Fest, its first-ever fundraiser.
