Lake McConaughy/Lake Ogallala Master Plan Meeting in Ogallala on June 1

LINCOLN – A public informational meeting will be held June 1 in Ogallala regarding the Lake McConaughy/Lake Ogallala Master Plan, which is being developed.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission will host the meeting, which will include a short presentation of goals and objectives created by the advisory committee, and a question-and-answer session in which public comment will be recorded.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the conference room of the Quality Inn, 201 Chuckwagon Road.
