ROGERS, AR – The Army Corps of Engineers will host Beaver Lake Master Plan and Shoreline Management Plan scoping workshops in March to share information about the revision process and to collect public comments concerning land use management and shoreline use around the lake.

Public scoping workshops were previously held for the master plan revision in early 2015. Upon completion of those workshops and a review of public comments, the development of alternatives for the master plan began. This process identified the potential for significant changes to the shoreline management plan. As a result of these potential changes, the Corps decided to revise both the master plan and shoreline management plan concurrently in an effort to ensure consistency between the two plans so that the public has a clear understanding of the relationship between the two.

At the drop-in public workshops, a six-minute informational video will play continuously.  Representatives from the Corps will be available to answer questions and maps will be shown to provide an overview of the master plan, shoreline management plan, or the process itself.
