Moragans like to tussle, apparently, and one of the most contentious issues ever to cross a town council agenda -- accomodations for off-leash dogs and others at -- comes before Moraga's civic leaders tonight, Wednesday.
The issue, as those of you following the drama well know, has been packed with emotion, lawsuits, bitter confrontation, and accusation -- and that was when things were still relatively civil.
But now, three years after citations were issued to an unfortunate few off-leashers and the town struggled to come to grips with the best possible future use of the little park at the southern end of its border, three plans have emerged for public consumption.
A committee of 15 residents representing "off-leashers," local sports teams hungry for additional playing fields, and residents hoping for quieter, more family-oriented uses for one of Lamorinda's most beloved open spaces, hacked out the plans after a series of local meetings.
The results of their work will be presented to the council tonight, though town leaders could conceivably set aside their findings and embark on an entirely new path -- or one patched together from the proferred options.
The Town Council convenes tonight, Wednesday, at 7 p.m. in the auditorium at Joaquin Moraga Intermediate.
