The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Mobile District, hosted an open house public meeting on September 11, 2018 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Mobile Convention Center.
The event provided members of the public with information on the tentatively scheduled plan identified in the Mobile Harbor, Mobile, Alabama, Draft General Reevaluation Report with Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (Draft GRR/SEIS) released for public comment on July 27, 2018.
Members of the project team were on hand with graphical displays to discuss preliminary study results and to answer questions related to the proposed project.
Col. Sebastien P. Joly, USACE Mobile District commander, said that the meeting was highly successful.
“This was a great opportunity to pair people with concerns to subject matter experts in the Corps,” Joly said. “We will use that feedback to determine what adjustments need to be made as we finalize the final draft report.”
The public has until September 17 to submit comments, said USACE.
