Gulf RESTORE Council Draft Funded Priorities List 3a Public Meeting
Tuesday, December 10, 2019
The Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council (RESTORE Council) announces a public meeting to present its Draft Funded Priorities List (FPL) 3a. This will be the first in-person Gulf Coast public meeting held during the RESTORE Council’s 32-day public review and comment period on Draft FPL 3a. The two large-scale proposals under consideration in FPL 3a are the River Reintroduction into the Maurepas Swamp in Louisiana, and conservation of critical coastal habitat in the Perdido watershed in Alabama. This Draft FPL 3a will adhere to the FPL development processes committed to by the Council, particularly as they relate to the use of the best available science (BAS), public engagement and transparency, and the Council’s recently finalized Planning Framework.
During the Louisiana public meeting, the Council will present an overview of the Draft FPL 3a and request your input to ensure restoration investments fit into the broad vision of the Gulf of Mexico.
