The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is in its scoping comment period for the revision of its Norfork Lake Master Plan. “Scoping” is the process of determining the scope, focus and content of the master plan update documents.
For a planning process like the master plan revision, a scoping process is used as an opportunity to get input from the public and resource agencies about the vision for the master plan update and any issues the plan should address where possible.
The master plan guides the management of the government lands around the Corps’ reservoirs. It also affects future management of natural resources and recreational opportunities to ensure the sustainability of Norfork Lake.
The planning process will include an analysis of potential effects on the natural and social environment, including fish and wildlife, recreation opportunities, economics, land use, cultural and historical resources, aesthetics, public health and safety.
