The Community Foundation of Southwest Louisiana, working with the Urban Design Associates (UDA) team, has launched a website and scheduled a round of Listening Workshops to kick off the public involvement for the newly initiated robust resilience planning process for Calcasieu and Cameron Parishes.

The plan’s website, is now live and will be updated in real time. This site will provide information related to the mid-November Listening Workshops, as well as continued updates about the planning process, can be found. Visitors to the site can also sign up for direct updates.

The first phase of the planning process is an opportunity for the consultant team to listen directly to the needs and desires of area residents. There will be three Listening Workshops offered during the week of Nov. 15; all will present the same information and give participants the opportunity to share their vision.
