In September, the Saco City Council approved an ordinance change that requires dogs to be leashed and under control of their owners from April 1 to Sept. 30 on beaches in Saco where piping plovers or least terns are present or have traditionally nested... Previously, dogs only had to be on leash on the beach from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in July and August.
The amended ordinance intends to protect endangered and at-risk wildlife, not restrict dogs. This ordinance is in effect for Bayview Beach, Kinney Shores, and Camp Ellis Beach.
