US Army Corps of Engineers sets public open houses for Beaver Lake Master Plan Revisions

We received notice of public scoping open houses for the upcoming revisions of the Beaver Lake Master Plan.  The Beaver Lake Master Plan guides the classification and management of public lands around the lake and influences future recreational opportunities and natural resource management.  The master plan revision will set the stage for a later update of the operational management plan and shoreline management plan, which is how the vision of the master plan is implemented.  The planning process will include an analysis of potential effects on the natural and social environment, including fish and wildlife, recreation opportunities, economics, land use, cultural and historical resources, aesthetics, and public health and safety.

This is your opportunity to let the Corps know how you would like the lake to be managed for the future.  Attend one of three public scoping open houses to learn the details of the master planning process and provide your input to the master plan vision for future land use and management of Beaver Lake.
