What will happen at Tecumseh park?
Repair plans for Tecumseh Park on Lake Norfork will be the focus of a public workshop from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 13, at The Center in Gainesville hosted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Mountain Home (Arkansas) project office. The Center is off Highway 5 north at the Gainesville city limits. The park on Highway 160 at Tecumseh is a popular access point for boaters and fishermen; it was heavily damaged in the April 29, 2017, flood of the North Fork of the White River, which flows into the lake at Tecumseh. Left: Campsites, restrooms and most of the paved roadway in the park’s campground were destroyed by the 2017 flood, as was the boat ramp on the south side of the highway (above). At the workshop, displays and maps detailing the park repair plans will be shared, and representatives from the Corps’ Mountain Home office will be available to answer questions. Public comments will be accepted in writing during the workshop or may be submitted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org through Feb. 20. For more information, call 870-425-2700.
