The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) authored a plan two years ago to improve Collier County’s coastal resiliency. However, many coastal dwellers expressed environmental and economic concerns.
It wasn’t until early this month that the County Commissioners approved its resumption. The USACE invited the public to attend a virtual meeting April 18 and an in-person meeting on Wednesday, April 26. The meetings include a brief presentation followed by an open-house-style forum to answer questions and discuss the community’s concerns.
We’re hoping to arrive at a strategic plan that is beneficial to our people and the environment.
