Please join us on October 17 for a joint APA + ASLA + AIA lunch-n-learn to learn more about Louisiana’s future coastal flood risk, the comprehensive master plan to mitigate these risks, and resources available for planning and design professionals to incorporate future coastal flood risk knowledge into their practice. 

In June, the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority updated the state’s 50-year, $50-billion Louisiana’s 2017 Comprehensive Master Plan for a Sustainable Coast, unanimously approved by the legislature. This lunch-and-learn will provide information on coastal changes predicted in the master plan through an introduction and demonstration of CPRA’s Master Plan Data Viewer.

In addition, participants will get a sneak peek at the LSU Center for River Studies, an exciting new research facility that includes a 10,000 square-foot physical model of the lower Mississippi River. The facility also houses a state-of-the-art coastal exhibit area, which aims to educate and inspire the next generation of coastal scientists, engineers, planners, and designers.


The joint session across the interrelated disciplines of the APA, ASLA, and AIA will also provide an opportunity for participants to meet new colleagues.
