Elected Officials: How about replacing the rotted, rusted, decayed railing around the fort on the left hand side. A “temporary” fense has been there for over 8 years. A kid died falling off the fort wall.
It’s a safety hazard and I’ve called DCR 10 times. Nothing ever gets addressed.
A diagram of the fenced off area would be helpful.
Would access to the fishing pier be affected ?
Can pedestrians walk around the castle from Sully’s to sugar bowl ?
Your input is appreciated.
Mike Thomas – I can gladly send you a diagram and pictures. What is the best way to contact you?
Basically it is the entire stretch of metal railing that starts from the fish pier and left. A “temporary” barricade has been up for over 8 years to cover up the fence that has completely disintergrated. It is obvious as you walk from teh left hand side of the fort enterance.
