Coralville Lake Shoreline Management Plan Revision Open House - Comment Period Runs Through March 18, 2016

Published Feb. 10, 2016

Iowa City, IA. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Rock Island District, has been revising the Coralville Lake Lakeshore Management Plan which is now referred to as the Coralville Lake Shoreline Management Plan. The draft plan is now available for public review and comment. We will be hosting an open house on Thursday, February 18, 2016 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Coralville Lake Office located at 2850 Prairie Du Chien Road NE, Iowa City, Iowa. The purpose of the open house is to informally meet with individuals and groups to discuss the proposed Coralville Lake Shoreline Management Plan revisions.

Attendees will have an opportunity to learn about how the Corps will manage private development (i.e. boat docks, paths, steps) on public lands and waters. They can ask questions and provide comments to the plan prior to it being formally approved and adopted.

During the open house, maps showing current and proposed changes to shoreline zoning will be available for viewing and comment. Corps staff will be available throughout the event to answer questions and discuss the proposed changes. Limited copies of the draft plan will be available at the open house so we recommend it be viewed prior to the meeting via our website or at the Lake Office.

The Shoreline Management Plan is not a plan for flood risk management or water level management associated with major facilities such as a dam, gates, a spillway or outlet works. These items are addressed in other documents.
