Woody: Sanders Deal Saves Swim Area

Woodman: One of the strongest points of Idaho, is Private Property Rights. We have been trying to get more lake access for our citizens since I have been elected. Many, Many battles and lots of money. The supreme court ruled on the high water mark, above it Private Property. I was working in Malibu in the 1970's when the same thing happened on the ocean. Private property was above the high tide mark. Well, it has been 40 years of this battle in CD'A. I think we have done what we can preserving at least the Swimming Area and NO Docks. It sometimes does not feel like enough. I Know. We still believe and will always work for more Public Access to Lake CD'A.

Question: Did the city have any choice but to allow fences on Sanders Beach, given the Idaho Supreme Court decision that declared much of the property private?
