Virtual Public Meeting Notice
Beech Fork Lake and East Lynn Lake Regional Master Plan
US Army Corps of Engineers, Huntington District
You are invited to participate in a public meeting to obtain input for preparation of a Regional Master Plan and Integrated Environmental Assessment for Beech Fork and East Lynn Lakes. The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) defines a master plan as the strategic land use management document that guides the comprehensive management and development of all recreational, natural, and cultural resources throughout the life of the water resource development projects. The master plans are a vital tool produced and used by USACE to guide the responsible stewardship of USACE-administered lands and resources for the benefit of present and future generations. Public participation is critical to the successful revision of the master plans.
USACE generally expects Master Plans to have an effective lifespan of 15 to 25 years. An update to the Master Plan is required to reflect current conditions and prescribe an overall land use management plan, resource objectives, and associated design and management concepts. Key topics to be addressed in the revised master plans include land classifications, natural, cultural, and recreational resource management objectives, recreation facility needs, and special topics such as invasive species management and threatened and endangered species habitat.
