BRANSON, Mo. -- The Army Corps of Engineers’ Table Rock Project Office will temporarily suspend shoreline activity requests beginning Feb. 1, 2015 to establish a baseline number of permits and docks on the lake for officials to use while revising its 19-year-old shoreline management plan. New requests must be received or postmarked by Jan. 31, 2015.
Shoreline activity request will not be accepted during the shoreline management plan revision and all zoning and shoreline management regulations will remain in effect until the plan is complete. The revision is expected to be completed in spring 2017.
The Corps’ shoreline management plans are used to guide use of the shoreline to ensure the general public recreational enjoyment and fish and wildlife benefits on public lands and water, both now and for generations to come.
A series of public workshops will be held in the spring to inform the public about the process used to update the Table Rock Shoreline Management Plan. The workshops will also allow project personnel to gather information from local residents and park visitors. The locations, dates and times of these workshops will be announced in the near future.
At the public workshops, representatives from the Corps of Engineers will present an overview on the shoreline management plan revision process. Anyone with any interest in the future management of Table Rock Lake is encouraged to attend.
