To our readers:
At about 2:55 p.m., the Downtown Devil took down an article published March 7 called “Location suggestion for temporary dog park voted down by Hance Park committee.” The piece included a number of errors of fact, including the very impetus for the article. During its Wednesday meeting, the Margaret T. Hance Park Master Plan Steering Committee approved a temporary location for the dog park within the park between Third and Fifth avenues. Our article reflected the conversation about and reaction to the rejection of the First Street area, but the overall outcome of the committee meeting was included incorrectly.
We sincerely apologize to any readers who were misled by the information provided in our article, and we are working to correct the errors for publication of a future version of the story. The issue of Phoenix dog park proposals is especially important to our community, and the immediate feedback on the article has helped us to better understand the issue. We hope to continue serving the interests of the community, and we will continue to strive for perfection in our reporting of downtown stories.
