Mountain Home, Ark. – To provide the best value to the largest number of people possible during these austere economic times, the Army Corps of Engineers’ Mountain Home Project Office will stop accepting requests for shoreline use permits beginning May 1 through Oct. 1.

This includes applications for new or changes to private boat docks, permits for mowing on government land, and permits for meandering paths across public land to the water’s edge.  The Corps will continue to manage existing permits, and permit holders are reminded that the terms and conditions of their permits will still be enforced.

As was the case in 2013, deferring new shoreline use permits is one of several steps the Corps’ Little Rock District taking at Norfork Lake and across the district to reduce spending yet continue to provide quality benefits to taxpayers.  With the very real potential of a reduction of manpower available this summer, officials are refocusing manpower from processing shoreline use permits to helping fulfill ranger duties in the parks.

Persons with questions regarding shoreline or recreation activities on Norfork Lake should call the Mountain Home Project Office at 870-425-2700 ext. 1425.
