The city of Gloucester, MA, recently held a roundtable meeting to discuss the future of city-owned Ten Pound Island, which the public can access in small boats and kayaks.

According to the Gloucester Times, the city has commissioned Massachusetts Audubon to carry out a survey of the wildlife and terrain of Ten Pound Island, while the city’s general counsel is looking into taxpayers’ liabilities for anyone who might be injured during a visit to the island. It’s possible that warning signs may need to be posted on the island.

The discussion also touched upon the future of the island. Although an outside party has proposed construction of a tie-up float and picnic tables on the island, Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken reiterated that nothing is currently being planned.
