Because of the accelerating COVID-19 pandemic in the state, Missouri State Parks is postponing a meeting about Ozark Mountain State Park that had been scheduled for this evening.

A state parks spokeswoman said no new date for the meeting had yet been set, and that it most likely will be an online virtual meeting when a date is chosen.

Tonight’s meeting was slated to be part of the conceptual development plan for the closed Ozark Mountain State Park.

Park officials had planned to present eight options for the park and seek public comment about them. They include:

  • A day-use area, with parking;
  • A connector trail to nearby Henning Conservation Area;
  • A footbridge to take visitors over Roark Creek;
  • Hiking-only trails, with backpacking overnight allowed throughout the park;
  • Highlighting cultural and natural resources throughout the park;
  • Demolishing nonsignificant structures and protecting significant structures, like the one-room schoolhouse;
  • A special-use camping area for larger groups, like Scouts, with primitive tent camping only;
  • An overlook on one of the higher bald knobs, with benches and interpretive signage about the park.
