1992 Plan for the Big Sycamore Recreation Area

The following are sketches of what was visualized by Tennessee Valley Authority. This plan was a study by TVA and obtained for me by the Tennessee Citizens for Wilderness Planning, who also was very interested in seeing this area wisely be used. (website)

This report should interest many of you who would love to see something done with the mostly pristine Big Sycamore area.
Email the President or Vice President of TCWP if you would like to know if this plan could be revived. Cindy Kendrick or Jimmy Groton , or write to:

My Correspondence    The Plan
Since nothing was done what many may consider was a viable option was the building of what TVA has said will be the last permit for a Marina issued on Norris Lake now known as Norris Landing Marina and Jimmy's Place just at the water supply intake for the Tazewell/New Tazewell communities of Claiborne County.

My frustration sometimes is apparent as shown in this 1995 Letter to the Editor Claiborne County Progress.
