Published Nov. 8, 2019

Please join the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Fort Worth District, Operations Division and Southwest Division Regional Planning and Environmental Center for two public meetings in November, the first held on 20 November at 6 pm at the City of Jefferson Office of Tourism, 305 E. Austin St., Jefferson, TX 75657 and a second meeting held on 21 November at 6pm at the Maude Cobb Convention Center, 100 Grand Blvd, Longview, TX 75604.

USACE will provide information concerning the Lake O’ the Pines Shoreline Management Plan revision. At the conclusion of the presentation there will be an opportunity for the public to view maps, ask questions, and provide comments about the project. Following the meeting, the public will have 30 days in which to review the Shoreline Management Plan revision online or at the lake office and provide written comments.

The current Shoreline Management Plan for Lake O’ the Pines was implemented in 1978 to provide guidance for private uses of public lands. Since that time, many changes have occurred in policy and use. This revision is being done to bring the Shoreline Management Plan up to date, ensure environmental protection and public access of public lands, and honor past commitments at the Lake. Public participation is critical to the successful revision of the Shoreline Management Plan.

Questions pertaining to the proposed revision can be addressed to:  Robert Flowers, Lake Manager, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, 2669 FM 726, Jefferson, Texas 75657, (903) 665-2336, ext. 28, and Ms. Rhonda Fields, Project Manager, CESWF-PEC-TM, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District, P.O.
