BRANSON, Mo. -- After more than 30 years, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers is unveiling a new master plan for Table Rock Lake.

The plan will determine what can and can not be done on the federal property in and around the lake.

Greg Oller, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer lake manager, says the biggest changes to the master plan are the land classifications around the lake.

He says the new system will label property as environmentally sensitive, low density, and high density.

It determines the future of the land, but the president of Tri-Lakes Realtors, Jon Holloway, says they want to make sure the plan isn't hurting property value.

"Our greatest desire was to protect property values and protect a way of life for people that live around the lake,” says Holloway.

"People were confusing the master plan process with the Shoreline Management plan and they’re two totally different documents,” clarifies Oller.

Oller says permits for vegetation and boating docks will not be taken away.

He says the zoning will help maintain water quality and is balance between economic development and environmentally friendliness.
