USACE Galveston Hosts Stakeholder Partnering Forum

The USACE, Galveston District, will meet with non-federal sponsors, customers and agency partners to collaborate on best practices regarding programs ranging from environmental to flood risk management, dredging the Texas coast and regulatory oversight of U.S. waters during a Stakeholder Partnering Forum, on March 3rd.

The meeting will take place at the district’s headquarters building located at 2000 Fort Point Road, Galveston, TX 77550.

“We are fortunate to have George P. Bush, Commissioner of the Texas General Land Office, as our keynote speaker and the participation of Brig. Gen. David C. Hill, commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Southwestern Division,” said Col. Richard Pannell, commanding officer of the USACE Galveston District.

“Several non-federal sponsors are scheduled to provide a summary of their experiences and best practices in working with the Corps under a variety of authorities and project types. There will also be a number of interactive seminars and breakout sessions on specific topics of interest, oriented toward increasing stakeholder understanding about our programs and processes.”

The one-day forum will identify opportunities to optimize project delivery commitments and emergency management interests including the Levee Safety Program, updated federal authorities/policies/process and convey how these changes impact partnering on future projects.

The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center will offer a seminar entitled Co-developing Solutions through Engineering with Nature and Regional Sediment Management. This interactive session is designed to manage project delivery timeline expectations.
