Local forums to focus on critical flood issues

Featured in The Daily Comet Serving Terrebonne and Lafourche Parishes

By Garrett Ohlmeyer Staff Writer

The first of two public discussions in Terrebonne and Lafourche is scheduled for Tuesday night in Houma.

Forums Tuesday in Houma and April 4 in Mathews are expected to include some difficult discussions about what can be saved as the Gulf of Mexico encroaches on populated communities in Terrebonne and Lafourche parishes.

It’s among half a dozen forums along the coast sponsored by a state program called LA SAFE, or Louisiana’s Strategic Adaptation for Future Environments. It is the policy framework that accompanies Louisiana’s $50 billion coastal master plan, which is now being revised before heading to final approval by the state Legislature during a session scheduled to begin April 10.

The meeting in Houma, which will focus on Terrebonne issues, begins at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center, 346 Civic Center Blvd.
