Here is the link to the article in the D&C.
Here is the link to the pdf. of the letter they sent to Rose Harvey, Commissioner of the NYSOPRHP.
As I was reading and mentally noting all the inaccuracies of the letter (for instance, the lines they drew representing the zone (page 2) are totally inaccurate again - the yellow lines are about 500 ft. out along the pier and not 300 ft. 300 ft. out is approximately a little over halfway to the bend of the pier from the shore....but why let facts get in the way of your agenda....really.....)
Anyways, I happened upon page 11 - where there is a photo of a sign that says "Private Property Stay Behind Fence".
Under the picture the person wrote "Image: No Trespassing Signage Place by Homeowner on Lake Ontario Shoreline"
Imagine my surprise when I looked closely at the sign in the picture of the letter that the boaters sent to the NYSOPRHP, and under the words "Private Property Stay Behind Fence" I saw the words:
The boaters are claiming that the beach is not private, that it is open to the public and that the residents and Town are privatizing what should be public.
Too bad the NYS OPRHP disagrees - SINCE ROSE HARVEY, THE COMMISSIONER OF NYS-OPRHP AUTHORIZED THE SIGN TO BE PLACED THERE!
I have no problem with the boaters trying to challenge this law, as it is everyone's right to challenge legislation that they feel is unfair. But please....consult your attorney that you claim you have retained before sending out letters to NYS departments or releasing statements and letters to the media.
My concerns with the accuracy of their letter to the NYS OPRHP are below the fold, and if you click on "read more" you can view them.
