Four property owners in Southlake housing addition and two members of the fish and game commission spoke Monday against the change.
“If it works, don't fix it,” said Jim Roberts, fish and game commission chairman. “I am happy they have their area.”
Dishman has said there are lakes that are the same size as Arcadia in three states that don't restrict the use of personal watercraft.
John Fitch, 7351 Bayliner Launch, disagreed. He gave the council a list of lakes that do restrict personal watercraft use.
“Google safety, noise or water pollution and try to find something good,” Fitch said. “This is 180 degrees out of step with the rest of the world. If approved, it will be hard to celebrate Earth Day in Edmond.”
