Unsightly Site


There is little doubt that the recently added pet waste stations situated throughout the community are a big hit with dog owners. They're a welcome addition to non-dog owners as well, who no longer have to contend with gifts left behind on their lawns and in their flower beds. This seems to be a good solution to an issue that had become a serious problem for our management company. However, we just have to wonder why this particular station was installed on one of the prettiest open stretches of the Loop Road, at the entrance to the tennis and basketball courts. You can't miss it if you're anywhere in the vicinity — a beacon, if you will, to something we just might not want to highlight. Instead this station could have been placed around the bend off the Loop Road, just a few more steps for dog walkers. This is not an attractive addition to Princeton Landing and its location should be reconsidered.

Just curious.. Have you noticed an improvement with this issue since the pet stations were installed?

Hi Davis,
Thanks for your comment. Perhaps we'll hear from others in the community.

This may work for people who walk their pets on the loop road but the others who never leave their cul de sac are still leaving their "presents" behind.

Yes, this is a continuing problem. We posted a piece back on March 8 — there's a link to it in this post. There are also reminders in the community's newsletter.
