Regionwide Draft Restoration Plan 1 Public Meeting Materials Available
The Regionwide Trustees held two virtual public meetings to present the $99.6 million Draft Restoration Plan 1 on April 15, 2021. We will continue to accept public comments through May 6, 2021. More information on how to submit your comments is below.
During the meetings, we held breakout sessions to answer questions about the four different restoration types included in the draft plan: sea turtles, marine mammals, oysters, and birds. Then we presented project-specific information on the draft plan, which includes 11 restoration projects across all five states bordering the Gulf of Mexico, as well as other locations. The presentation was followed by a public comment period.
Materials from the meetings include:
- Meeting presentation slides (PDF, 39 pages).
- Meeting transcript (PDF, 17 pages).
