The committee is advisory in nature only with duties to include providing information and recommendations to the Little Rock District commander on revisions to the Table Rock Lake Master Plan and Shoreline Management Plan. The TRLOC may also, at the discretion of the District Commander, review any permit to be issued under the provisions of the existing master plan and shoreline management plan until any approved revisions are finalized and become part of the formal governing documents.
As part of the TRLOC charter, four public committee meetings will be held at the Dewey Short Visitor Center, Table Rock Lake, 4500 MO-165, Branson, Missouri. on the following days:
Meeting 1: 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Dec. 12, 2019
