LAWRENCE, Kan. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host a public meeting for the Clinton Lake Master Plan on Tuesday, Mar. 27, 2018 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. The meeting will be an open format hosted at the Clinton Lake Visitor Center located at 872 N. 1402 Road, Lawrence, KS 66049.
Clinton Lake is a multi-purpose project located in Douglas and Shawnee Counties, Kansas. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers manages the lake to provide benefits to the nation in areas of flood damage reduction, recreation, fish and wildlife management, water supply and water quality improvement.
“The prior Master Plan for the project was prepared in 1985. Since that time, recreational use patterns and populations of surrounding towns have changed as well as regulations guiding our master plans,” said Samantha Jones, park manager at Clinton Lake. “This plan may be in place for a long period of time and we encourage the public to provide input on future activities.”
The draft Master Plan can be viewed online at https://usace.contentdm.oclc.org/utils/getfile/collection/p16021coll7/id/6368.
