Florida Keys Storm Risk Management Study on Display

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host a series of three National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) public scoping meetings for the Florida Keys Coastal Storm Risk Management (CSRM) Feasibility Study, and will accept public scoping comments until January 8, 2019.

The purpose of this study is to reduce potential damages caused by coastal storms and improve human safety and coastal resiliency in the Florida Keys.

“Scoping” is the step in the NEPA process when the public is invited to participate in identifying issues, alternatives, and potentially significant effects to be considered in the analysis. This helps the Corps identify and eliminate from detailed study any issues that are not significant or that have been covered by prior environmental review.

The public scoping meetings will take place at:

  • Key West 
    Monday, December 3, 2018
    6 – 8 p.m.
    Key West Commission Room
    Harvey Government Center
    1200 Truman Avenue
    Key West FL 33040
  • Marathon
    Tuesday, December 4, 2018
    11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
    Marathon Commission Room
    Marathon Government Center
    2798 Overseas Highway
    Marathon FL 33040
  • Key Largo
    Tuesday, December 4, 2018
    6 – 8 p.m.
    Holiday Inn Key Largo
    99701 Overseas Highway
    Key Largo FL 33037

Each meeting will begin with a brief presentation, followed by an open house, where members of the public may view posters, talk with Corps and Monroe County staff, and provide written comments.
