Lake Merritt Dog Park Decision Delayed — Again; Rockridge Safeway Expansion Approved

A deeply divided Oakland City Council deadlocked last night on the question of whether to approve a controversial dog park proposed for a green space on Lake Merritt. The council’s 4-4 vote means that Mayor Jean Quan will have the final say on the dog park — and she said last night that she would not make her decision until January — when new councilmembers join the panel. Earlier in the evening, Quan asked the council to delay making a decision until April 15 to give her and city staff time to analyze alternative sites for the dog park.
