Pittsburgh Corps seeks public input on Tygart Lake’s future

Published Aug. 16, 2018

WHO: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District

WHAT: The Pittsburgh District is seeking public input for the Tygart Lake Master Plan and Shoreline Management Plan revisions.

WHERE: Taylor County Middle School, 670 Spring Hills Road, Grafton, WV 26354

WHEN:  5 to 8 p.m., August 20.

WHY: We invite you to let us know what is important to you at Tygart Lake and to let us know your good ideas on how you would like Tygart Lake to be managed. This is your opportunity to provide input and help shape the future of Tygart Lake.

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, while the shoreline management plan guides use land adjacent to the lake in a way that promotes safe and healthful use, while maintaining environmental safeguards to ensure a quality resource for public use.

NOTE: Attendees are encouraged to stay for the entire set of presentations and breakout groups. USACE staff will be available at 7:30 p.m., at the conclusion of the breakout sessions for one-on-one questions and concerns.

Contact stacy.e.lewis@usace.army.mil to submit comments or sign up for the mailing list.
