Going to the Farmers' Market? Keep your dog on a short leash

Rebecca, is there any evidence of pet defecating and urinating at the farmers market. Thus this article. I believe that there is universal understanding that food shouldn't be in the same vicinity as bathroom facilities... for any species.

If you think it's ok, that you should just wash your food, then that's your choice. I think the average reasonable person would believe otherwise.

I believe this statement accommodates everyone's concerns and is far more liberal than any other farmer's market that I've ever been to.

“While most other markets ban dogs, the Lawrence Farmers' Market's board has opted instead to adopt a policy that seeks to accommodate all community members, including those who support dogs at the market and those who do not,"

Basically this is a middle step towards banning pets. It's up to the pet owners at this point. Those that are responsible owners will only have the irresponsible ones to blame if this turns into an all out ban, similar to most every other farmer's market.

Sandy, You don't have to catch a disease for the condition to be unsanitary. The fact that people can't catch diseases that effect dogs is irrelevant.

Do you think dogs should be allowed at the Lawrence Farmers' Market?

If the children were urinating on flowers and vegetables, they'd probably get banned too.

I have issues with any animal near the food I would feed my family. I love animals, I love my two dogs, but there are just some places where it isn't appropriate for them to be. Seems like common sense to me.

Simply put, you don't know what you're talking about.

Richard, heads up.... this is one of the main north/south arteries in town. The only one that is longer is Iowa. This is not a street to put a bottleneck on.... for any reason.

There's already access to it. That is the stupidest thing I've seen today.

I use this section of Kasold at least twice daily, more on weekends. And, while I have no problem with round-a-bouts (that's an argument for a different time), I do have a problem with their logic on the single lane theory. Kasold is one of the three major north/south arteries in town that will tie in directly to the SLT, the other two being Iowa and Wakarusa.

I feel that any planning for Kasold should follow the same logic as with the other two. Moving to a two lane roadway is not smart. I can only see traffic increasing once access to the SLT on Kasold is improved in the near future. I don't see this as improving traffic flow or being more safe for pedestrians or cyclists. I don't claim to be an expert, but I do understand logic and what they're claiming doesn't seem to take into consideration all the variables.
