With pet ownership on the rise and Downtown Lafayette becoming a place where more people want to live, the need for proper pet waste management grows. Introducing pet waste stations to the downtown district would help encourage resident pet owners to pick up after their pets and properly dispose of the waste while also communicating to the general public that downtown is a clean and welcoming environment. This project would deploy ten pet waste stations strategically placed throughout downtown for dog walkers to use at their convenience. Each station would include a dispenser box with pet waste bags, a trash can, and informative signage.
Forgetting to bring a bag or running out during walks are the most common reasons why pet waste is left unattended. Having a visual reminder to pick up pet waste creates a sense of social pressure that helps improve compliance. The goal is to prevent pet waste problems by providing downtown residents with the means and motivation to keep their community clean. These stations will help ensure a safe and cleaner downtown area for everyone in Acadiana to enjoy along with their furry friends as residential projects continue to take place in Downtown Lafayette.
