Abstract: The Master Plan for Beaver Lake was first approved December 13, 1963. Subsequent revisions were prepared with the latest revision approved on February 23, 1976. The Master Plan is intended to serve as a guide for the orderly and coordinated development, management, and stewardship of all lands and water resources of the project. It presents data on existing conditions, anticipated recreational use and the type of facilities needed to service anticipated use, sensitive resources requiring protection, and an estimate of future requirements. Since the 1976 master plan revision, development has created new and unforeseen demands on the public lands and resources of the project in the Beaver Lake region. These new demands on project resources as well as naturally occurring changes to the resources, combined with the need to bring the master plan in line with current management practices at the project, and with new guidance and directives within U. S, Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), has dictated the preparation of this Master Plan revision. This revised Master Plan presents an inventory of land resources and how they are classified, existing park facilities, an analysis of resource use, anticipated influences on project operation and management, and an evaluation of future needs as required to provide a balanced management plan for cultivating the value of the land and water resources. Included in the revised Master Plan is an evaluation of expressed public opinion, new resource use objectives, and a new land classification system. The format utilized for this plan is outlined in Engineer Regulation/Engineer Pamphlet 1130-2-550 (dated 30 January 2013), which sets forth policy and procedure to be followed in preparation and revision of project Master Plans. This guidance is different from the original Master Plan format, which was a design memorandum. Beaver Lake original Master Plan can be found in Design Memorandum 13-4; a listing of all the previous Master Plan design memorandums and prior supplements can be found in Appendix B.
