Implementation of Ordinances
Increase coordination among state and parish agencies working on nonstructural issues in Louisiana. Need a single entity to act as a clearinghouse.
Consider amending regulatory requirements, such as: 1) local land use planning; 2) building codes; 3) flood damage prevention ordinances; 4) risk reduction project funding.
Identify the needs of Louisiana residents and encourage the development of funding and support initiatives to meet those needs.
Train officials and educate the public on their flood risks and the nonstructural options available to them.
CPRA Nonstructural Team will lead coordination and communication between staff, the CPRA Board Subcommittee, and the Advisory Group.
