; I The village, built in 1936 in

natures are considered adaptable I
?for public recreation purposes and |

In addition to providing hous- 1
ing accommodations for vacation- 1

vices and other attractions, the
North Carolina Division of Fores

lease to establish a fishing boat
dock on TVA's Apalachia Lake,
just below Hiwassee Dam. if such
a facility is found desirable. Both
Apalachia and Hiwassee Lakes
have become increasingly popular
with fishermen, and development
of Hiwassee Dam Village as a
state park will afford an oppor
tunity to provide recreational ac
commodations that sportsmen
have been seeking in this area.
Before obtaining the village by |
lease, North Carolina park offi- 1
cials prepared a preliminary |
master plan of proposed expan- 1
sion. This plan will servo .;s a
guide to the park's development,
especially during the three-year
initial period of the lease. After
three years, the lease is auto
matically renewable for an ad
ditional 1G years, if public demand
and use have demonstrated the
need for the village and surround
ing lakeshore acreage as a state
About 30 of the 63 housing units
in the village will be reserved
for an indefinite period for oc
cupancy by employees of the U.
S Navy Ordnance Laboratory at
Hiwassee Dam, and TVA person
nel stationed in the area for opera
tion of powerhouses and mainten
ance of TVA properties.
