USACE: Open House on Keystone Lake Project

 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host an open house to answer questions about the National Environmental Policy Act process and receive comments about the potential environmental impacts of the proposed Jellystone Camp Resort™ and commercial marina development project at the Salt Creek Cove North Recreation Area on Keystone Lake in Mannford, Oklahoma. 

The meeting will be open house format, with no set or formal presentation. Interested persons may arrive anytime between 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., visit the information tables, discuss the action with Corps, City of Mannford, and Keystone Resort & Yacht Club personnel, and make comments. Comments will be collected, made part of the public record, and used to guide the National Environmental Policy Act analysis.

The open house will be at the Mannford Senior Citizens Center, 169 Greenwood Avenue, Mannford, Oklahoma, Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

The open house complies with the National Environmental Policy Act.  It is one way that agencies gather information and concerns about expected impacts from federal actions. The Keystone Resort & Yacht Club is proposing to construct and operate a themed recreational park facility and commercial marina to increase tourism and serve the region as a recreational destination area.

Keystone Resort & Yacht Club would sublease the property from the City of Mannford, which currently leases the property from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

An environmental assessment will evaluate public and environmental concerns related to the proposed development. As part of the scoping process, the Corps of Engineers requests that the public, interested parties, federal, State and local agencies take part by identifying issues related to the project and providing input for the environmental assessment.

The Corps will include this input as it evaluates impacts associated with this action. Comments and questions are requested by December 31, 2014.
