Buffalo River Watershed Management Plan Meeting

FTN, at ANRC’s direction, will conduct a series of meetings, the purpose of which will be to gather public input and to explain the process that will be followed in the development of the plan. The first meeting is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on December 8, 2016, at the Searcy County Civic Center Gym in Marshall, Arkansas, located at 515 Zack Rd. The meeting will last approximately two hours, and all stakeholders with interests in the Buffalo River Watershed Management Plan are encouraged to attend.

 Throughout the next sixteen to eighteen months, ANRC—with input from stakeholders—will develop a voluntary, watershed based management plan that is designed to help sustain the watershed and its resources. The purpose of the plan is to provide a framework for landowners, communities, and organizations to voluntarily undertake water-quality projects in the watershed and improve the ability to solicit and secure funding and assistance from various government and private sources. There will be several additional public meetings during the development of the plan.
