On October 23, 2017 FERC approved certain modifications to the Yadkin Project Shoreline Management Plan (SMP). The modifications (1) increase flexibility in the design of private individual and shared piers; (2) allow private piers in subdivisions developed prior to May 1, 1987, with a 50-foot lot width; (3) reduce the minimum water depth at private piers and multi-use facilities from 8 feet to 6 feet; (4) permit boat lifts with supports resting on the reservoir bottom; (5) allow a sitting area within the 100-foot forested setback; (6) relax limitations on vegetation removal in the 100-foot forested setback to improve water views, among other things; and (7) remove voluntary guidelines for timbering operations because most of the measures are already contained in the forested setback requirement.  Cube Yadkin will begin accepting requests and applications under the approved modifications on November 1, 2017.
