HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. -- The Army Corps of Engineers is reminding anyone interested in the Greers Ferry Lake Master Plan revision process concerning land classifications around the lake to submit their comments by Oct. 13.

Comments can be mailed to:  Greers Ferry Lake MP/EA Project Manager, Little Rock District, Programs and Project Management Division, P.O. Box 867, Little Rock, Ark., 72203; or email your comments to CESWL-GreersFerryLakeMasterPlan@usace.army.mil.  An on-line fillable comment card is available at https://go.usa.gov/xR7Rf.

A master plan is the guidance document that describes how the resources of the lake will be managed and provides the vision for how the lake should look in the future. The master plan also provides the basis for the operational management plan, which guides day-to-day management activities of natural resources, and shoreline management plan, which guides private uses of public land and water.

The current Greers Ferry Lake Master Plan was developed more than 40 years ago and is outdated. The master plan revision classifies public lands around the lake based on environmental and socioeconomic considerations, public input, and an evaluation of past, present, and future trends.
