Terrebonne Parish residents expressed their preferences tonight for potential future projects aimed at helping the community grapple with Louisiana’s changing landscape and coastal erosion.
The projects ranged from a wetland park to a seafood market to coastal protection improvements.
After months of research, planning and drafting, LA SAFE representatives returned to the parish with six project proposals that residents could vote on.
LA SAFE, or Louisiana’s Strategic Adaptations for Future Environments, was created to help six parishes, including Terrebonne and Lafourche, come up with community-focused plans to adapt to Louisiana’s changing landscape and complement the state’s Coastal Master Plan. Tonight’s proposal unveiling was part of LA SAFE’s fifth and final round of meetings with residents.
