Louisiana 2012 Coastal Master Plan
The Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority is developing the 2012 Louisiana Coastal Master Plan, the legislatively required five year update to the first coastal master plan published in 2007. The 2012 Master Plan will present a list of specific projects that the CPRA believes represent our best investments for the coast.
We anticipate releasing a DRAFT plan for public review and comment on January 12, 2012. The CPRA will host three public meetings (see below or click here
for more details) in late January and the public comment period will remain open until February 25, 2012. We will present the plan to the Louisiana Legislature this spring for approval. Once approved, the plan will drive state action to protect and restore our dynamic coast.
Your attendance at the public meetings is critical to the future of our state and we want to hear your thoughts and suggestions on the 2012 Coastal Master Plan. Please come out and learn about our efforts and show that you are "Committed to Our Coast"! We will have an Open House between 1:00pm-5:30pm to learn about project selection, flooding risks, and how our landscape is changing. The formal public hearing will start at 5:30pm.Monday, January 23, 2012 from 1:00pm - 7:30pm
