CPRA Seeks Public Comment on Draft Annual Plan Fiscal Year 2020

The Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) is seeking public comment for its draft Annual Plan Fiscal Year 2020.

Three public hearings are scheduled across the coast to present the draft plan and to receive public comment; two additional public hearings are scheduled on the west and east side of the Atchafalaya Basin to hear the draft annual plan for its program.

The Annual Plan document provides a three year outlook of projected revenues and expenditures. Project schedules are also included.

Each hearing will begin at 5:30 p.m. with an open house featuring a CPRA Exhibit and a display of Annual Plan materials. The presentation on the draft Annual Plan and public comment session will be from 6-7 p.m.

Hearing locations and dates:

  • Jan. 29, 2019 – Lake Charles Civic Center (Jean Lafitte Room)
    900 Lakeshore Drive, Lake Charles, LA 70601
  • Jan. 30, 2019 – New Orleans Lakefront Airport (Atrium)
    6001 Stars & Stripes Blvd., New Orleans, LA 70126
  • Jan. 31, 2019 – Houma Civic Center (Meeting Room 3)
    346 Civic Center Blvd., Houma, LA 70360

To comply with Act 570 of the 2018 Regular Session, which transferred the responsibilities of the Atchafalaya Basin Research and Promotion Board and the Atchafalaya Basin Program from the Department of Natural Resources to CPRA, the Atchafalaya Basin Annual Plan is now also incorporated in the Annual Plan. As a result, CPRA will hold two additional public hearings to present the Atchafalaya Basin Annual Plan:

  • Feb. 5, 2019 – Bayou Sorrel Branch Library
    22415 Hwy. 75, Plaquemine, LA 70764
