WARSAW, Mo. – The public comment period for the revision of the Harry S. Truman Dam & Reservoir Master Plan has been extended to July 1, 2022.

 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has begun the process of revising the Harry S. Truman Dam & Reservoir Master Plan, which was last updated in October 1988. The revision would bring the Master Plan up to date with current policy and regulations, land usage or designations, as well as consider current and projected visitation and recreational trends.

 

Public comments can be provided in a variety of ways; by mail to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Harry S. Truman Dam & Reservoir Master Plan Revision, 15968 Truman Rd, Warsaw, MO 65355, by email to harry.s.truman@usace.army.mil or through the online at http://go.usa.gov/xugxv.

 

The Master Plan is 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 project. The Master Plan guides efficient and cost-effective management, development, and use of project lands. It is a vital tool for the responsible stewardship and sustainability of project resources for the benefit of present and future generations.

 

“We look forward to receiving more comments on this Master Plan over the next month. While this plan is very specific to strategic land management use, unfortunately this document does not address the varying concerns heard regarding the limited hours of the Harry S. Truman Visitor Center,” said Jim Sandberg, Operations Project Manager for Harry S. Truman Lake. “We hear those concerns too and are committed to keep the Visitor Center open for the next couple of years even though we didn’t receive any funding to operate and/or maintain the Visitor Center in our current budget. The FY23 budget will make it three years that funding to operate and maintain our Visitor Center has not been received, however we are searching for ways to partner to keep the Visitor Center open and appreciate all the support in our operations and the partnerships we share.”
