To the Editor:
This is an appeal to Milford and Woodmont residents. Throughout most of this past winter, the New York-based owners of a summer weekend residence at 108 Beach Avenue, with the help of Bridgeport-based Attorney Chuck Willinger, have been petitioning the City of Milford for the right to erect an approximately 100-foot long, 3-foot high fence with "no trespassing" signs declaring as off-limits and private an area that has been for over a century one of the most publicly enjoyed landmarks of the Woodmont waterfront.
Merwin Point, along with the famous Flagpole Rock right next to it, defines the area. The rocks jutting out into the water invite fishermen, children exploring tide-pools, dog-walkers, strollers, couples enjoying the sunset.
