PROVO, Utah (AP) -- The public is weighing in on plans to revitalize Utah Lake.
Last month the Utah Lake Commission unveiled the final draft of a master plan for the lake. The plan is now undergoing a 45-day public comment period.
At a public hearing Thursday, some Utah County residents criticized the plan as too ambitious while others urged the commission not to underestimate the lake's potential.
The plan is meant to provide policies for the lake on recreation, natural resources, land use, shoreline protection and transportation.
Commission Executive Director Reed Price says the commission expects to finalize the plan by the end of May.
Dan Wheeler, of Orem, calls the lake an untapped jewel. He wants to see the commission come up with different recreation opportunities at the lake."
