REGIONAL STAKEHOLDER WORKSHOPS
The Louisiana Office of Coastal Protection and Restoration (OCPR) is establishing three Regional Stakeholder Workgroups (RSW) to provide guidance and input for the development of the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority’s (CPRA) Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 Annual Plan, future annual plans, and the 2012 Master Plan update, as well as other future OCPR planning efforts.
OCPR has proposed the creation of three RSWs, representing regions of the coast corresponding to the following coastal Louisiana Planning Units described in the 2007 Master Plan:
• Mississippi River RSW- Planning Units 1 and 2;
• Terrebonne/Atchafalaya RSW- Planning Units 3a and 3b; and
• Southwest Louisiana RSW- Planning Unit 4
The RSWs will make use of the regional knowledge and technical expertise of their constituent members to provide input into the FY 2011 Annual Plan and other future OCPR planning efforts to ensure that regional and community protection and restoration issues are addressed in these efforts. The RSWs will also function as a medium between the state of Louisiana and regional coastal interests by communicating regional and local needs, concerns and issues to OCPR for consideration in decision-making and communicating OCPR planning decisions or proposals that have consequences for their regions. If you have any questions, contact Mr. Karim Belhadjali (email@example.com; 225-342-4123).
