BRANSON, Mo. – The Army Corps of Engineers is extending the public comment period until Sept. 15 for Draft Table Rock Lake Shoreline Management Plan, Draft Environmental Assessment, Draft Finding of No Significant Impact, and 2014 Table Rock Lake Master Plan.

 “Our goal is to hear from people about ideas that help sustain the future of the lake for many years to come,” said Dana Coburn, project manager for the Table Rock Lake SMP update.

The shoreline management plan for Table Rock Lake establishes policy for the protection and preservation of the desirable environmental characteristics of the shoreline while maintaining a balance between public and private shoreline use.

The last SMP update was completed in 1996.

“We recently held open houses to allow for feedback from the public on how we can improve the draft SMP and associated documents,” said Coburn. “More than 700 attended these events and some people still have questions about what we are proposing in the draft SMP update.  By extending the comment period we hope everyone will have a chance to read the draft and provide suggestions on how to improve the final product.  With that goal we have extended the public comment period deadline until Sept. 15.”
