MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – The Army Corps of Engineers is hosting four drop-in public workshops Feb. 26 through March 1 in Theodosia, Missouri, Mountain Home, Arkansas, Harrison, Arkansas, and Forsyth, Missouri, to discuss the draft Bull Shoals Lake Shoreline Management Plan and seek input from the public.  All interested persons are invited.

A draft Environmental Assessment, which evaluates the potential impacts of each alternative, will also be available for review.

The draft documents are online at: https://go.usa.gov/xnpue.

The drop-in style workshops will be held at the following locations: Feb. 26 from 5 p.m. to 7 p. m., Lutie School cafeteria and gym, 5802 U.S. Highway 160, Theodosia, Missouri; Feb. 27 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Arkansas State University Sheid Center, 1600 S. College Street, Mountain Home, Arkansas; Feb. 28 from 5 p.m. to 7 p. m., Quality Inn Convention Center, 1210 U.S. Highway 62/65N, Harrison, Arkansas; and March 1 from 5 p.m. to 7 p. m., Forsyth Public School cafeteria, 178 Panther Road, Forsyth, Missouri.

At the workshops, representatives from the Corps will present an overview of the draft plan, answer questions and gather comments from the public.

The public’s input may be provided at the workshops or at any time during the public comment period. 

The comment period will run from Feb. 12 through March 16.  Comments can be mailed to the Army Corps of Engineers, Little Rock District, Programs and Project Management Division, ATTN:  Bull Shoals SMP, P.O. Box 867, Little Rock, AR 72203-0867 or e-mailed to m4xbslsmp@usace.army.mil. An on-line fillable comment card is available at https://go.usa.gov/xnpue.

The Corps announced a temporary halt to new shoreline use requests in April 2016 to facilitate the SMP revision process which will remain in effect until the completion of the plan. 

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