CPRA Fall Outreach

Community Conversations Being Held Across Coastal Louisiana to Inform Development of the 2017 Coastal Master Plan

As part of the 2017 Coastal Master Plan, the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) – in partnership with Restore or Retreat and numerous community partners throughout coastal Louisiana – will host a series of six Community Conversations during October to update residents on the master plan and receive valuable input and feedback that will be used in developing the draft plan, which will be released in January 2017 for formal public comment and review.
Each Community Conversation will include:

  • An open house beginning at 5:00 p.m. designed to share information about the master plan and ongoing efforts by CPRA and its community partners; and
  • Dinner served to all participants at 5:40 p.m., followed by a CPRApresentation at 6:00 p.m. and group discussion about the master plan, potential projects and programs, and more.
