Open house workshops slated for Fort Gibson, Tenkiller lakes

TULSA — The Tulsa District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host open house workshops related to the review and revision of the project master plans (MP) for Fort Gibson Lake and Tenkiller Lake.

The open house workshop for Fort Gibson Lake will be held Tuesday, April 15, from 6-8 p.m. at the Wagoner Civic Center, 301 S. Grant Ave. The one for Tenkiller Lake will be Thursday, April 17, from 6–8 p.m. at the Gore Gymnasium, 214 E. Fourth St.

These will be informal come-and-go open houses with no formal presentations. Interested people can stop by an open house to visit the information tables and discuss the projects with Corps personnel. Attendees will be provided forms for providing input and comments about the revision of the lake master plan. Comments are also welcome in any form throughout the MP revision process.

The MP is the strategic land management document that guides the comprehensive management and development of all project recreational, natural, and cultural resources throughout the life of a Corps project. It is a tool for efficient and cost-effective management, development, and use of project lands.

The MP does not address issues associated with private boat docks or permits for shoreline vegetation modification. These issues are specifically addressed in the shoreline management plan (SMP) for a lake project. The SMP for Fort Gibson Lake and Tenkiller Lake will be reviewed and potentially revised at a later date. Private dock and shoreline vegetation modification permits will be addressed at that time, and not in the current MP review process.

Comments and questions regarding the Fort Gibson Lake open house workshop or MP review process can be directed to Fort Gibson Lake Manager Tom Heathcock at (918) 682-4314 or Tom.Heathcock@usace.army.mil.

Comments and questions on the Tenkiller Lake open house workshop or MP review process can be directed to Tenkiller Lake Manager Tish Livesay at (918) 487-5252 or Patricia.Livesay@usace.army.mil.
