PUBLIC MEETINGS SCHEDULED TO DISCUSS FUTURE OF LAKE MOHAVE RESORTS
BOULDER CITY, Nev. - The National Park Service is holding three public meetings April 9, 10 and 11 to present preliminary alternatives to the Cottonwood Cove and Katherine Landing Development Concept Plans/Environmental Impact Statement at Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
The meetings will be held from 4-6 p.m. at the following locations:
April 9, Boulder City Library, 701 Adams Blvd., Boulder City, Nev.
April 10, Mohave Community College, Room 2, 3400 Arizona 95, Bullhead City, Ariz.
April 11, Searchlight Community Center, 200 Michael Wendell Way, Searchlight, Nev.
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.
A full description of the plans will be available at all meetings and is available for review online at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/projectHome.cfm?projectID=23037 . Comments may be submitted via the website. Written comments should be mailed to Superintendent, Lake Mead National Recreation Area, 601 Nevada Way, Boulder City, Nev., 89005. Comments must be received by April 16, 2013.
