The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is updating its Rivers Project Master Plan, and is seeking public input as it goes through the process. The first opportunity to do so will be this week when the corps hosts a pair of meetings during which the public be allowed to weigh in with what they would like to see along this stretch of the Mississippi River. The meetings will also provide the public the opportunity to learn about the status if activities along the river.
Charlie Deutsch, Environmental Stewardship Manager, says one of the projects that was the result of suggestions by the public is the National Great Rivers Museum.
The first meeting will be held at the museum Tuesday from 3-5pm and from 6-8pm. There will be another meeting on Wednesday at the Clarksville, Missouri Visitor's Center, also from 3-5pm and 6-8pm.
