Via Mark Kirschke: 

Attached is the official notice of the five upcoming meetings being hosted by US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). 

A couple of clarifications:

All comments should be sent to (NOT to the project manager)

Within each of the 3-hour public meetings will be three (3) presentations, on the half hour. So someone interested in attending can come at 5, 6 or 7:00pm. There will be exhibits around the room to look at, and then the Corps will give a presentation at 5:30pm, 6:30pm, and 7:30pm.

Anyone who wants to comment can pick up a comment card at the meeting, submit by email to or mail to the Corps in Galveston as per the notice.
