Residents who want to have a say on how local river parks are utilized in the future have a chance to get their voices heard.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District is hosting a public meeting on Wednesday, June 22 to gather input on proposed changes to the Stanislaus River Parks master plan.
The master plan guides the management of natural and cultural resources and the development of recreation-related facilities in and around the Corps-managed park near Oakdale. It hasn’t been updated since 1977.
The public meeting is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Bianchi Community Center, 110 S. Second Ave., in Oakdale. It will be an open house format, and there will not be a formal opportunity for audience questions or comments.
Anyone interested in helping guide changes to the master plan can respond to the questionnaire until July 25, 2016 to firstname.lastname@example.org or during the June 22 public meeting.
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.
