Lake Elsinore Shoreline Development Standards Subject Of Town Hall Meeting

A Town Hall meeting to discuss boat dock standards on the lake is scheduled July 18.

Do you have input on boat docks around Lake Elsinore? and now Riverside County Supervisor Bob Buster and Lake Elsinore Mayor Brian Tisdale have confirmed they will be holding a Town Hall meeting July 18 to discuss boat dock standards for the lake.

The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Everyone is invited to attend.

A subcommittee of Lake Elsinore and Lakeland Village residents has been working to develop boat dock standards. On May 1, a subcommittee proposal was for consideration. But after hearing more than an hour of public comment on the proposal, the commissioners decided to continue the hearing to June 5. On that date, they voted to recommend that city council approve the standards. The issue, however, has drawn sharp criticism from some in Lakeland Village, so the city opted to place the standards on hold.

For more information about the upcoming meeting, contact Lake Elsinore City Clerk Virginia Bloom at 951-674-3124, ext. 269 or 262.

NOTE: Attached is documentation from the city on the proposed boat dock standards. It was provided on July 10.

Linda, the attempts to get the county involved were disclosed by Pat Kilroy at the public meetings. I'm certain he or Warren Morelion have copies of emails they sent. Swimming is not allowed in the lake anywhere.... only wading. Yea, I know... sounds kinda silly. You can wade, water ski, jet ski etc. but you can't swim. Go figure. I agree on the meeting and hope Tisdale and Buster have some solutions that make sense... but I have my doubts.

I've checked around... No one wants Lakeland Village to be a part of Lake Elsinore....If you wonder why Pete Dawson is freaking out about this just go to google earth and zoom in on his property in Lakeland, It's the one with the big boat (Princess) parked (sinking) at his dock.... and just look at all the trash on his 2 acre lot. Ever seen the show "Horders"?

@Gordan, that's not the Princess Louise is it? I heard that boat was moved to Lake Elsinore. The reason I ask is that my sister was married on that ship in the 70's. Just wondering....:~)

Cat: As far as I know, it was simply named the "Princess". There were 4 other side paddle boats built by the Wrigleys...The Empress, Emperor, Phoenix and the Blanch W. However, there was a sidewheeler called the Princess Louise but it was reported to have sunk in 1919 off northern Vancouver Island, Canada. Go to www.lakeelsinoreprincess foundation.org for the history of our Princess.... it probably was the ship your sister was married on. It would sure be neat if it got restored... but will require lots of $$$$$$.

Thank you Gordan! I appreciate you getting back to me. Unfortunately it's not the Princess (Louise) boat that I had hoped to find. It was however fascinating to read about that boats history & the move over there. It is one more thing that I would like to see next time I am on the lake. Thanks again!
