USA: Series of Public Meetings Scheduled for CEPP

Series of Public Meetings Scheduled for CEPP

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Jacksonville District will be holding a series of public meetings to present the proposed final array of alternatives for the Central Everglades Planning Project (CEPP) and give all interested individuals, groups and agencies an opportunity to comment and ask questions.

Five meetings will be held throughout south Florida between Dec. 10 and Dec. 18. Each meeting will host an open house from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., followed by formal presentations and public comments from 7:30 to 9 p.m.

– Dec. 10 – Embassy Suites Fort Myers-Estero, Heron & Ibis Room, 10450 Corkscrew Commons Drive, Estero

– Dec.11 – John D. Campbell Agricultural Center Auditorium, 18710 SW 288th Street, Homestead

– Dec. 12 – John Boy Auditorium, 1200 South W.C. Owen Avenue, Clewiston

– Dec. 13 – Susan H. Johnson Auditorium, Wolf High-Technology Center, Indian River State College, Chastain Campus, 2400 SE Salerno Road, Stuart

– Dec. 18 – Fern Forest Nature Center’s Main Hall, 201 S. Lyons Rd., Coconut Creek.

“Public participation has been — and will continue to be — an invaluable part of the Central Everglades Planning Project,” said Kim Taplin, USACE project supervisor. “These meetings will further ensure that the Corps and our partner, the South Florida Water Management District, receive the public input needed to make sure we are developing an understandable and broadly supported path forward.”

The goal of the Central Everglades Planning Project is to deliver within two years a finalized plan, known as a Project Implementation Report, for a suite of restoration projects in the central Everglades to prepare for congressional authorization as part of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP). USACE is jointly conducting this planning effort with the South Florida Water Management District.
