Advisory signs have been posted at the Lake Somerset boat ramp and around the rookery. Additionally, educational signage will be installed near the parking area by the city. A safety issue was proposed that the lake has several blind corners on the water around the small islands.
Lake Somerset is an urban public access lake, managed by the city. Currently, there is not currently a supporting ordinance to regulate speed alone. The rookery has not been designated as a specially protected zone, but has many wild birds that nest there.
The city will follow up with the FWC to investigate the safety issue.
*Meeting notes were submitted by a Woodlake Garden Patio Homes Attendee.
