Because of the government shutdown, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Little Rock District suspended all activities associated with the Table Rock Lake Master Plan revision until receipt of fiscal year 2014 appropriations.
“We can no longer meet our commitment to complete the Master Plan for Table Rock Lake and lift the shoreline moratorium by the end of December 2013 because of the current fiscal situation,” said Project Manager Dana Coburn. “We will reschedule the remaining work when funds are provided.”
More than 1,100 people attended the Draft Master Plan public open houses held in the Branson area in August. The district also received over 900 written comments on the Draft Master Plan.
“I want to thank everyone for providing input on the Draft Master Plan. Based on the input received, we plan to review the vegetative management area to determine the appropriate balance between the environment, lake users and surrounding home owners,” said Coburn, who is also the chief of the district’s Environmental Branch. “We will continue to keep the public informed throughout the process.”
