Army Corps seeks public input on Table Rock Lake

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans three meetings this week to hear the public’s ideas for the future of Table Rock Lake.

Dana Coburn is leading the effort to change the lake’s master plan, which hasn’t been updated since it was developed in 1976.

She says the corps wants to know how the public envisions the use of the lake in 20 years. Other questions to be considered are what is important about Table Rock Lake and what should be done to improve it.

The Springfield News-Leader reports the public will have a second opportunity to discuss the lake’s future before the master plan is completed by December 2013.

The meetings will be Wednesday in Reeds Spring, Thursday in Shell Knob and Saturday in Branson
