Dogtown Preservation Commission



Dogtown, with its critical role as our water supply, diverse landscapes, open space and recreational opportunities, and historical and cultural heritage, should be preserved and protected for the public benefit.

The DPC’s mission is to formulate and implement a comprehensive plan for ongoing preservation, restoration, management, education, and stewardship of Dogtown.

The DPC, in an advisory capacity, will assist the City in developing and maintaining its management plans for Dogtown.
