WINCHESTER, Tenn. ­—  The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) proposes to revise the 2000 Tims Ford Reservoir Land Management Plan (RLMP) by reviewing all existing allocations of TVA land in this plan to respond to legacy issues, new issues, and changes in conditions and circumstances.

The proposed RLMP revision would be consistent with the TVA Land Policy, Natural Resource Plan (NRP) and Comprehensive Valleywide Land Plan (CVLP), and TVA’s goals for managing natural resources on public lands. RLMPs guide land use approvals, private water-use facility permitting, and resource management decisions on TVA-managed public land.

TVA intends to prepare an Environmental Assessment (EA) addressing the environmental impacts of the proposed revision to the Tims Ford RLMP.  TVA is interested in receiving comments on potential changes to the Tims Ford RLMP and potential environmental issues, impact to historic properties, or concerns that may result.  TVA invites the public to visit tva.com/landplanreview for more information about the proposed land plan revision.  Additionally, a virtual public meeting link will be available on this webpage beginning June 24, 2024, and a live webinar will be held on July 10, 2024, at 5 p.m. CT.  Registration is required to attend the webinar.  A recording of the webinar will be made available on the webpage.

Comments may be submitted online, by mail, or email.  Any comments received, including names and addresses, will become part of the administrative record and will be available for public inspection.  Please submit comments by August 9, 2024.

Written comments should be sent to Lesley Webb, Senior Specialist, Tennessee Valley Authority, 2835A East Wood Street, Paris, Tennessee 38242.  Comments may also be submitted on the project webpage here or by email at [email protected].
