Among the many proposed changes on the public hearing schedule for the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will be new rules regarding a no-vessel-entry swimming area at the Pines Recreation Area Swim Beach on Lake Glenville in Jackson County.
The hearing is set to start at 7 p.m. Jan.12 at Haywood Community College, 185 Freelander Drive in Clyde.
Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC sent a formal application to the Wildlife Commission requesting the no-vessel-entry swimming area at the Pines Recreation Area Swim Beach to ensure the safety of swimmers and boaters at the new swim beach.
This no-vessel-entry swimming area proposal is one of 37 proposed changes to the state’s wildlife management, game lands and fishing regulations for the 2016-17 seasons.
