Citizens Strongly Criticize Planning Commision Member's Position on Lake Access!

To All COLA LO Members,

This week citizens reacted strongly to a planning commission members suggestion that the lake allow public access.  Citizens are wondering if this is the long term intent of the city under the new comprehensive plan and with the new parks that provide a view of the lake.  

Many are suggesting that public access to the lake is part of undisclosed agreements with the foothills project and streetcar.   These projects would develop the area and allow for visitors to gain access to the lake through the newly developed sundleaf park.    Its speculation at this point but the city has not refuted this in writing and reaction has been swift and strong from citizens.  

Citizen reaction can be found in the following articles:   Answer is NO  and There is a history

The strong reaction in these articles and online shows the consternation and frustration in the community over specific issues.  Citizens are awaiting a firm commitment from city leaders on the issue.

The position of the planning commission member was originally mentioned in Jack Bog's blog.  Please see earlier blog posts for details and notify all members, contacts, and friends.
