Your feedback is critical to the success of this study.

In accordance with USACE planning guidelines and NEPA requirements, a proactive approach is taken to engage the public, resource agencies, industry, local government, and other interested parties in the Coastal Texas Study planning process.

The first round of public comments led to significant changes in the Draft Proposal, such as changes to the Bolivar Road Gate System. 

Your comments and engagement help shape the proposals, and ultimately, the outcome of the study. Find out below how you can attend a public meeting or submit a comment.


meeting extended

The GLO and the  USACE have extended the public comment period for the Coastal Texas Study by an additional 30 days to allow public stakeholders and the local community more time to comment on the Draft Report. The Coastal Texas Study Draft Report was initially released on Oct. 30, 2020, and was open for a 45-day public review and comment period ending on Dec. 14, 2020.

The new end date for the comment period will be Jan. 13, 2021, bringing the public comment period to a total of 75 days.

Throughout the study process, public feedback is critical to understanding the needs and opportunities along the Texas coast. The intent of the public comment period is to receive ideas and concerns from the citizens of Texas. Constituent feedback is a vital part of this process. The Texas GLO and USACE remain committed to ensuring the voices of the people of Texas are heard.
