Public meetings discussing changes to Martis Creek master plan postponed

Published Oct. 31, 2014

SACRAMENTO, Calif.­ – Public meetings scheduled for Nov. 3 to discuss Martis Creek Lake and Dam’s master plan update have been postponed until December.

The meetings will provide members of the public an opportunity to offer their thoughts and suggestions for proposed environmental stewardship and recreational opportunities at Martis Creek Lake.

Specific dates, times and locations will be announced as soon as they are finalized, and announcements will be posted throughout the recreation area.

The master plan, which guides the management of natural and cultural resources and development of recreation-related facilities in and around the Corps-managed reservoir near Truckee, was last updated in 1977.  If any modifications to Martis Creek Dam are proposed in the future as a result of the Corps’ ongoing dam safety study, the master plan would be further reviewed and modified as necessary. 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is America’s largest provider of outdoor recreation opportunities on federal public lands, serving more than 350 million visitors annually at 422 lake and river recreation parks in 43 states.
