One of the major themes in the presentation by the Wildlands Conservancy was that the dam at Robin Hood is unsafe for the public. They showed the sign declaring danger and no swimming in their power point presentation three times. This warning was repeated by the park director, John Mikowychok, and reported in Thursday's Morning Call article. There was no danger sign for the last 72 years. There was no danger sign this spring when I conducted the WPA tour. There wasn't even a danger sign two weeks ago when I showed City Council the dam. The sign was just made and installed last week by Mikowychok to provide the Conservancy the photo opportunity and rationale to use in their presentation.
How ironic for a city to post a danger sign two weeks before they want to demolish a 72 year old dam. If I were Council, I would find such a contrivance disrespectful.
