KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District will host a public meeting to provide information and accept comments pertaining to the draft master plan for Pomme de Terre Lake at the Pomme de Terre Visitor Center, Rt. 2 Box 2160, Hermitage, Mo., at the east end of the dam, Jan. 27 from 3-6 p.m.

The draft master plan includes an Environmental Assessment and a Finding of No Significant Impact. The documents were prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, and existing Corps policy and regulations. The Corps is accepting public comments on these documents until Feb. 12, 2016. The documents are available for review here.

Pomme de Terre is a multi-purpose project located in Hickory and Polk Counties, Mo. The prior master plan for the project dates to 1988. Since that time, recreational use patterns and populations of surrounding towns changed and regulations guiding master plans (EP 1130-2-5-dated June 2013) also changed dictating the need to update the master plan for Pomme de Terre.

The master plan is a 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 project. It is a vital tool for efficient and cost-effective management, development and use of project lands.

Please direct comments and questions regarding the master plan and requests for the reports to Curtis Hoagland, Environmental Resources Specialist, by telephone at (816) 389-3401 or by email at
