The Tulsa District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announces a public meeting to discuss the review and revision to the master plan and shoreline management plan for Toronto Lake, November 17 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The informal public meeting will take place at the Fredonia Public Library, 807 Jefferson St. in Fredonia, KS 66736.

No formal presentation will take place but members of the public are invited to visit information tables and to ask questions and present any comments about the master plans and shoreline management plans to Corps of Engineers staff.

The master plan is the strategic land management document that guides the comprehensive management and development of all project recreational, natural, and cultural resources throughout the life of a Corps lake project. It is a vital tool for efficient and cost-effective management, development, and use of project lands. 

The shoreline management plan is the document that helps to ensure the shoreline and adjacent public lands are managed and developed to protect the environment and to achieve balance between permitted private uses and resource protection for general public use of Corps lakes.

Members of the public may submit comments by mail to Christopher Hammerschmidt, 2453 Lake Road, Fall River, KS 67047. Members of the public can also submit comments by e-mailing Christopher.l.hammerschmidt@usace.army.mil or by calling 620-658-4445.
