Coburn said it’s time to revise the plan to help guide how future decisions about the lake are made. Each of the three public information meetings will begin with an overview of what the Master Plan is and how it will be revised. Visitors will have the chance to stop at Corps work stations, each focused on one of the three questions. Corps personnel will gather comments from the meetings to develop a draft Master Plan, which should be available for the public to see next summer.People will have a second opportunity to say what they think about the plan before a final Master Plan is completed by December 2013.
