After threatening a lawsuit over the noise coming from the dog park at Baron Cameron Park, a group of North Reston homeowners have now filed a preliminary injunction demanding that the park be shuttered. Give us some good blockquote, BFFs at Reston Now:
The neighbors filed the preliminary injunction last week in Fairfax County Circuit Court, saying the park “constitutes a private nuisance.”All the better to enjoy the soothing sound of traffic coming from quaint country road Wiehle Avenue, which separates the plaintiffs from the dog park.
“The dog park noise, mainly from unruly dogs barking and fighting, has grown to intolerable levels over the last two years and is likely to become even more severe in the spring and summer months,” says the court document.
“On its worst days, the noise is incessant,” the document states. “The nuisance noise at the dog park disrupts the Longwood Grove Plaintiffs’ reasonable use and enjoyment of their properties.”
Of course, there is, as they say in the movies, a plan: As part of a master-planning process for Baron Cameron Park, there are already plans to move the dog run into the interior of the park. The only catch? That plan involves the construction of the awesome new 90,000 square foot recreation center that's been discussed of late. We're sure that's not going to bother any litigation-happy neighbors, nosiree. Nothing to see here, and definitely nothing to listen to!
