USACE defines the Master Plan as the strategic land use management document that guides the comprehensive management and development of all recreational, natural, and cultural resources throughout the life of the water resource development project. Public participation is critical to the successful revision of the Master Plan.
The Master Plan study area includes Grapevine Lake proper and all adjacent recreational and natural resource properties under USACE administration. Grapevine Lake is a multi-purpose reservoir constructed and managed for flood risk management, water supply, fish and wildlife, and recreation. The current Master Plan for Grapevine Lake is dated 1971. The revision is needed to address changes in regional land use, population, outdoor recreation trends, and USACE management policy.
Key topics addressed in the 2022 Draft Revised Master Plan include updated land classifications, new natural and recreational resource management objectives, recreation facility needs, and special topics such as utility corridors and public hunting. Revision of the Master Plan does not address in detail the technical operational aspects of the reservoir related to the water supply, flood risk management, or shoreline management permitting missions of the project.
