CORPS EXTENDS PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD FOR TABLE ROCK SHORELINE MANAGEMENT PLAN UPDATE

Published April 6, 2015

BRANSON, Mo. – The Army Corps of Engineers is extending the public comment period until May 1 for Table Rock Lake Shoreline Management Plan.

 “Our goal is to hear from people about ideas that help sustain the future of the lake for many years to come,” said Dana Coburn, project manager for the Table Rock Lake SMP update.

The shoreline management plan for Table Rock 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.

The last SMP update was completed in 1996. For a number of years, the district has requested funding to update the Table Rock Shoreline Management Plan.

“We recently held open houses for the public to learn about the SMP revision process and provide the Corps input on what needs to be updated in the current plan,” said Coburn. “We want to get as much input from the public so we have extended the comment period deadline until May 1.”
