Community Wide Meeting March 28, 2017
LA SAFE – Louisiana’s Strategic Adaptations for Future Environments
The Louisiana Office of Community Development and the Foundation for Louisiana have been in the Parish for several months now leading conversations about the future of Terrebonne Parish. The groups are gathering information in six parishes to help decide how to allocate $40 million won by the State in the National Disaster Resilience Competition sponsored by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Both residents and council members have met for focus groups and direct interviews to inform the help develop the Terrebonne Parish set of actions to adapt to our changing coastline and natural and manmade disasters.
March 28th at the Civic Center from 6-8 pm,
Food, childcare and transportation available.
The facilitators from Terrebonne Parish will assist the State in presenting the projections for the Terrebonne coastline and inland threats from flooding and other events. The goal is to share information and maps, and hear from the public about what they think of the projections and what residents want to do to adapt to the situation other than big levee and floodgate options. This could be common practices such as buyouts, elevations, reconstructions, or newer adaptations such as safer building practices, coastal restoration, or natural barriers – workforce development? All approaches and suggestions are welcomed. The best plan will take into account input from all residents in all different situations.
See attached for a further description of the six-parish effort and a flyer for this specific event. Post broadly within your circle to be sure that everyone is heard. Feel free to post at churches, community centers, businesses or hand out at civic events. All are welcome, and all have a perspective that needs to be captured.
