As you may know, LD56 was unanimously declared OUGHT NOT TO PASS by the Joint Standing Committee of the IF&W. Only one member, Mr. Martin, stated his reason for his Ought Not To Pass vote. That was because the Lower Pond has a public boat launching area. The rest of the Committee did not say anything.
I think that this process put the issue in the forefront and a conversation among the private citizens attending, both pro and con, will bring a new perspective of concern for safety of humans and wildlife, especially the loons, the environment, and the quiet of Wilson Ponds.
Thanks to all of you for your responsiveness to this issue.
