I not sure where the legal stance is on this issue I just heard about in the City of Arvada. They are a Home Rule city but still seems like they don't have the legal standing to close navigable waterways.
What are thought on this from a legal standpoint? If I can access a lake, pond, stream from a public access point, or a private one with permission...?
Just trying to find out more about where they are coming from.
Best I can tell, they don't want to have to do a water rescue.
Sec. 66-28. - Lakes, ponds and streams. In any lake, stream or pond in any public park within the city, no person shall swim, wade, boat, raft or ice skate unless signs are posted expressly permitting such activity. (Code 1960, § 17-30; Code 1981, § 22-9)
