Federal Agencies Looking for Mo. R. Comments

Aug 28, 2009

ScenicIf you are among the growing number of Missourians who have discovered the majestic beauty and vast recreational opportunities of the Missouri River, you might want to attend one of two meetings the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are holding in the Kansas City and St. Louis areas early next month to discuss the river’s management. The meetings are:

– Sept. 1 at the Irene B. French Community Center, 5701 Merriam Drive, Merriam, Kan.

– Sept. 2 at the St. Charles County Administration Building, Rooms 115 and 116, 201 N. Second St. St. Charles, Mo.

The meetings will run from 3 to 5 p.m. and from 6 to 8 p.m. at each location. The agencies are looking for public input about the Missouri River Ecosystem Restoration Plan. The meetings will start with a brief presentation about the plan. Participants will have a chance to tell federal officials what the river means to them and how they would like to see it managed in the future.
