Washington Park "rules" not respected.

Posted on July 6, 2018 at 2:11 PM by Nancy Oakland-Potter

Washington Park is am amazing resource for the community of Laramie. My concern is that the enjoyment of many is being spoiled by a few, who refuse to acknowledge and respect the few "rules" that apply to all who use Washington park. My 5 month old puppy om leash was charged by a large dog off-lead. There are dogs off-lead all over the park on a daily basis...Unfortunately, no one seems to respect or enforce the leash law in place here in the City of Laramie..I also was run off of the walking path by speeding bicycles being ridden on the pedestrian pathway. The signage painted in a few places on the path way (NO BICYCLES ALLOWED) is so worn it is almost illegible. Why can't this be repainted. ws responsible for this seemingly non issue, that is spoiling the enjoyment of many. Older adults. Parents with strollers, Residents of the Laramie Care Center in wheelchairs. So many impacted by the selfish actions of the few !

Am I allowed to use 1-2' of alleyway space to plant shallow garden beds?

We live in West Laramie. We have owned this house and lived here for about 3 years. As far as we know, the alleys have never seen maintenance from the city. There are deep ruts and tall grass lining the entire length. There is about 4 feet from our back fence to the alley roadway. I am guessing that I don't own that property, but based on the lack of city maintenance, it seems that I am required to maintain it. I like being a good neighbor and a helpful citizen, so I don't mind. But since I am responsible for it, I am wondering if I am allowed to use 1-2' of that space to plant shallow garden beds to grow vegetables for my family. Thanks for any information!
