According to a news release, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, is scheduled to host four open house meetings in February to update the public on the status of a Recreation Capacity Study and Master Plan Update for Lake Lanier.  

Each open house will feature the same information, with subject matter experts from the Corps of Engineers on hand to brief the public on the purpose and goals of the study. To find a meeting near you, review the dates/times and locations listed below.

The open house events include one in Forsyth County from 4-8 p.m. Feb. 20 at the Central Park Banquet Room, 2300 Keith Bridge Road, Cumming.

The Corps of Engineers began a Recreation Capacity Study in October 2017 to review current and future recreational needs and capacity at Lake Sidney Lanier in Georgia. The study is expected to be complete by the end of 2018.

The results of the study will be used to update the Lake Lanier Master Plan. The Master Plan is a comprehensive land and recreational management tool that guides the stewardship of natural and cultural resources and the provision of outdoor recreation facilities and opportunities at the project.

Data collected during the study will be documented in a recreation capacity report, and additional public meetings will be held to present the report's findings. An updated draft Master Plan and Environmental Assessment will then be developed with a final updated Master Plan expected to be released by the end of 2019.
