Lakes’ public review for Shoreline Management Plan completed

Staff Report

The Shoreline Management Plan for Barren River, Nolin River, and Rough River lakes, Kentucky, has undergone a comprehensive review and update, including a public review period that ended on Dec.17, 2015.

All comments received during that review period have been considered, and they have been incorporated into the final plan where appropriate.
