Small Management Plans, Minor Plan Amendments and Incompatible Use & Linear Facilities Policy Requests Highlights

Management Plans for Properties 160 Acres and Smaller

The Office Of Environmental Services has received the following land management plans for properties 160 acres and smaller in size. Acquisition and Restoration Council (ARC) members who wish to have any of these plans placed on a formal ARC agenda for discussion should contact Hank Vinson, ARC Staff Director, prior to the date indicated below. Please note that at least three ARC members must make the request for a plan for a property smaller than 160 acres in size to be scheduled for an ARC agenda. If we do not receive three requests by the stated deadline to schedule a plan for consideration at an ARC meeting, the plan will be approved.

Minor Amendments to Management Plans:

Lake Talquin State Forest Management Plan Amendment

Florida Forest Service

The Florida Forest Services (FFS) would like to amend the Lake Talquin State Forest Ten-Year Land Management Plan. The FFS would like to incorporate Gadsden County’s Pat Thomas Park (Sublease No. 3971-05) in the Forest’s management plan. The proposed amendment is not mentioned in the 2011 Lake Talquin State Forest Land Management Plan. Map, photos, and other documents are attached.

The proposed use for the sublease is to expand the existing RV facilities to a more developed RV park with restroom facilities, grilling accommodations, tent campsites, and two lake docks. This proposed use will supplement the existing facilities, which are already owned by Gadsden County, and include a playground, boat landing, boat dock, fishing dock, lake-side dock, restroom facilities, and RV/camper connection lots. The link below contains the plan and associated maps.

The amendment will be approved by the Division of State Lands unless three ARC members request it be placed on an agenda for consideration at a future Council meeting. The deadline for requesting that it be considered by ARC is  September 30, 2016.
