LINCOLN – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission heard an update on the Lake McConaughy/Lake Ogallala Master Plan during its meeting June 17 in McCook.
The meeting took place in Room 213 of McMillen Hall at McCook Community College, 1205 East 3rd St.
Commissioners heard about the Lake McConaughy/Lake Ogallala Master Plan, the role and input by the plan’s advisory committee, an update on public input received during a June 1 informational meeting, and the next steps in the process.
The Lake McConaughy/Lake Ogallala Master Plan is a comprehensive plan that provides guidance to cohesively manage the lakes for the natural resources and the public that use the lakes. It will complement Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District’s Land and Shoreline Management Plan for the area and provide Nebraska Game and Parks the ability to better address the issues that have been brought up by constituents.
The commissioners also heard an update on pheasant research in southwestern Nebraska; a report on turkey management and hunting in Nebraska; and a communications report on spring events and promotional campaigns.
