Norris, Normandy, and Wheeler Reservoirs, and Marion County, Tennessee
TVA is considering granting easement agreements lasting as long as 30 years to commercial operators for five recreation areas on TVA land, starting in 2013. For these same five campgrounds, TVA is also considering issuing revocable license agreements to commercial operators for the 2012 season. TVA is seeking public comment as part of the review process.
TVA is considering license agreements with Recreation Resource Management Inc. (RRM) for the operation of Loyston Point Recreation Area on Norris Reservoir in Union County, Tenn., and Cedar Point Recreation Area on Normandy Reservoir in Coffee County, Tenn. TVA is also considering issuing license agreements to qualified applicants for the operation of Mallard Creek Recreation Area on Wheeler Reservoir in Lawrence County, Ala., Barton Springs Recreation Area on Normandy Reservoir in Coffee County, Tenn., and Foster Falls Recreation Area in Marion County, Tenn. Additional information about these facilities can be found at Camping and Recreation Areas.
TVA will be soliciting proposals during 2012 for the operation of these facilities under 30-year easements beginning with the 2013 recreation season.
TVA is interested in receiving comments on the potential for the proposed action to affect the environment or historic properties and to identify any other issues associated with this proposal. The comments will be used to identify issues to be addressed in the environmental review for the proposed action of granting easements on the property.
Any comments received, including names and addresses, will become part of the administrative record and will be available for public inspection. All written comments on this proposed action must be received on or before April 15. Written comments may be mailed to the address below or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
