I am writing to ask that you keep the off leash laws at Newport dog beach between the rocks and river mouth.
As a resident I want to keep this beach dog friendly. It is one of the only safe places around for a dog to enjoy the water and socialize with other dogs.
The Costa Mesa dog park has no water and often has aggressive dogs, and Huntington Beach dog beach is too close to the freeway, has dangerous waves and many dangerous and aggressive breed dogs.
Newport has none of these problems. I used to live by the river mouth and the traffic never bothered us. Please keep Newport river mouth dog and off leash friendly.
