2017 Coastal Master Plan

Public Hearings Being Held on CPRA’s 2017 

Draft Coastal Master Plan & Fiscal 2018 Draft Annual Plan

In accordance with Louisiana Legislative Act 8 of the First Extraordinary Session of 2005, the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority was created to develop, implement and enforce a comprehensive protection and restoration Master Plan for Louisiana.  It is also mandated that CPRA provide an update to the Master Plan every five years, 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.  Public comment and feedback will be accepted until March 26, 2017.
