In order to help prevent the spread of coronavirus in Terrebonne Parish, a Parish-wide curfew has been jointly implemented by Terrebonne Parish President Gordon Dove, Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Jerry Larpenter and Houma Police Chief Dana Coleman, beginning April 1, 2020, from 10PM till 5AM and will remain in effect daily until further notice.
Parishes intending to create a Local Coastal Zone Management Program with grant funding from the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration first send a letter of intent approved by the parish Police Jury or Council. Parishes then go through the process for developing a local program which consists of a number of tasks leading to development of a local program document which includes necessary components pertaining to an up-to-date characterization of coastal resource management issues in the parish.
Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Government's Coastal Zone Management Program Documents were finalized in April 2000 under the Department of Planning & Economic Development. The Coastal Zone Management Office was later moved to the Office of Coastal Restoration and Preservation, which was created in 2005.
