Public Input on Environmentally Sensitive Area Designation

August 21, 2019 , 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at the Benbrook Lake office staff are working on a revision of their Strategic Land Use Management Master Plan. The process of updating the Master Plan will categorize the current and future land use when it comes to recreation, natural resources and cultural resources on Corps property at Benbrook Lake. One of the major changes would be to classify previous areas that may have been fisheries and wildlife lands or recreation areas that need to be changed to Environmentally Sensitive Areas (ESA) which are defined as: “Areas where scientific, ecological, cultural or aesthetic features have been identified. These areas must be considered by management to ensure they are not adversely impacted.”  Native remnant prairie (especially at Benbrook Lake), bottomland hardwoods among others have been identified via habitat surveys to be included in the ESA designation. ESA designation will provide further protection of the resources than previous land designations. Once completed and approved, the plan is usually good for the next 25 years.
