PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD EXTENDED TO APRIL 27
BOULDER CITY, Nev. - The public comment period for the Cottonwood Cove and Katherine Landing Development Concept Plans/Environmental Impact Statement has been extended to April 27.
Comments may be submitted online athttp://parkplanning.nps.gov/projectHome.cfm?projectID=23037. Written comments should be mailed to Superintendent, Lake Mead National Recreation Area, 601 Nevada Way, Boulder City, Nev., 89005.
Cottonwood Cove and Katherine Landing are two of the major developed areas on Lake Mohave. The development concept plans for these two areas reevaluate the implementation strategies that were originally identified in 1986 and incorporate the concepts and carrying capacities that were approved in 2003. Once approved, this document will provide overall guidance for the future redevelopment of these areas for the next 20 to 25 years.
Under alternative 1, no action would be taken. Existing facilities would be retained with minimal changes. Alternative 2 would implement previous planning proposals that separate day-use and marina facilities, maintain overnight facilities and provide flood mitigation. Alternative 3, the park's preferred alternative, would enhance day-use opportunities, upgrade and expand overnight facilities and provide flood mitigation.
