MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – The Army Corps of Engineers is hosting Bull Shoals Lake Shoreline Management Plan scoping workshops Aug. 8-12 to share information about the update process and to collect public comments concerning shoreline activity around the lake.


The scoping workshops will be held at the following locations: Aug. 8 from 4 p.m. to 7 p. m., Forsyth Public School, Forsyth, Missouri; Aug. 9 from 4 p.m. to 7 p. m., Flippin Middle School, Flippin, Arkansas; Aug. 10 from 4 p.m. to 7 p. m., Lutie School, Theodosia, Missouri; Aug. 11 from 4 p.m. to 7 p. m., Arkansas State University Sheid Center, Mountain Home, Arkansas; Aug. 12 from 4 p.m. to 7 p. m., North Arkansas Community College Center Campus, Harrison, Arkansas. Anyone interested in the future of shoreline activity use around Bull Shoals Lake is invited to drop in anytime during the workshops.


At the public workshops, an informational overview on the shoreline management plan update process will be provided and representatives from the Corps of Engineers will answer questions from the public about the SMP or the process.


The workshops will also allow Corps personnel to gather information from other agencies, local residents and lake visitors.  Scoping comments on the SMP update are being taken now through Sept. 2.


The Corps announced a temporary halt to new shoreline use requests in April to facilitate the SMP revision process.  The shoreline management plan for Bull Shoals 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.
