The Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) will hold several public meetings in January on the development, implementation and enforcement of the comprehensive protection and restoration Master Plan for Louisiana.
In accordance with Louisiana legislation, CPRA is providing an update to the Master Plan every five years in order to take maximum advantage of new science, innovation and lessons learned.
CPRA is also required to update their Annual Plan, to showcase near-term projects and budget allocations forecasted over the next three fiscal years.
As part of the Master Plan and Annual Plan process, CPRA has scheduled four public meetings to take comment on both Draft Plans.
The schedule for public hearings is as follows:
