Pittsburgh District to host Berlin Lake Master Plan public meeting
WHO: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District
WHAT: The Pittsburgh District is revisiting the Berlin Lake Master Plan and is seeking feedback on the proposed changes to the management of the lake, resulting from public input. The master plan will affect use of natural resources and recreational activities at Berlin Lake for the next 25 years.
WHERE: Deerfield Township Hall, 1450 OH-14, Deerfield, OH 44411
WHEN: 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20, 2018
WHY: We invite you to let us know what is important to you about the management of the public lands at Berlin Lake.
Changes in the Corps’ regulations and the community needs have necessitated a revision to the master plan. The revision will classify the government lands around the lake based on environmental and socio-economic considerations, public input and an evaluation of past, present, and forecasted trends.
Corps regulations require periodic review of the plans to ensure they meet current public and environmental needs. The master plan guides the use of government-owned and leased lands around the lake in a way that promotes safe and healthful use, while maintaining environmental safeguards to ensure a quality resource for public use. The plan does not address water management operations, associated prime facilities, i.e. dam, spillway or shoreline management, as separate documents outline those operations.
