Extension of the Public Review and Comment Period

The Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council (Council) recently provided a 7 day extension of the 45 day public review and comment period, the deadline for submitting public comments on the Planning Framework draft is 11:59 MDT on June 19, 2019. The Planning Framework draft became available on April 26, 2019. The Council continues to gather public input on the Planning Framework draft to ensure restoration investments fit into a broad vision for the Gulf of Mexico.

The RESTORE Council hosted and recorded two live public webinars on April 29, 2019. During each live webinar, Council staff presented an overview of the Planning Framework draft, and responded, in real time to selected questions from webinar participants. A recording of the Planning Framework draft webinar presentation and a list of all questions and responses from each webinar is available on our RESTORE Education Opportunities Series page. In order to give the public additional opportunities to learn about the Planning Framework draft, ask questions, and provide comments, the RESTORE Council hosted public meetings in each of the Gulf Coast states.
