The parishwide meetings will allow residents to begin the process of drafting strategies based on the feedback generated during the community-meeting process. This will lead to the design of specific parishwide adaptation strategies with at least one project, program or policy that would be funded through LA SAFE—a planning initiative coordinated by the Louisiana Office of Community Development’s (OCD) Disaster Recovery Unit, in partnership with Foundation for Louisiana’s Coastal Resilience Leverage Fund. The LA SAFE planning process will conclude with the final adaptation of a plan for each parish by the end of 2017.
A full list of the upcoming parishwide meetings is below. All meetings are 6 – 8 p.m., unless otherwise noted. Food will be provided. Anyone requiring special assistance to participate in a meeting, or who requires childcare or transportation to attend, should contact Foundation for Louisiana at 504.517.5292 at least five working days prior to the meeting.
