Area residents can get updated on a recreation study being done of Lake Lanier at four open houses.

The Army Corps of Engineers will provide results of a study reviewing current and future recreational needs and capacity on the lake. The Corps started the study in October 2017.

According to the Corps, the results will be used to update the Lake Lanier Master Plan, which has been described as a “comprehensive land and recreational management tool” for the lake.

The recreational study is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.

An updated draft master plan is expected to be finished, along with an environmental assessment, by the end of 2020, the Corps said.
