Description:
Abstract: This GIS shapefile data illustrates special economic zones included in the Louisiana Speaks Regional Plan Vision. Special economic zones include existing national, state, and regional industrial facility or recreational sites without levee protection, but with effective hazard planning and controls on commercial and residential development. The Louisiana Speaks Regional Plan process study area includes the 35 southernmost parishes of Louisiana.
Purpose: The Louisiana Speaks Regional Plan Vision illustrates a future for South Louisiana based on the input of tens of thousands of citizens and stakeholders. It also includes elements of the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority’s Master Plan, the Louisiana State Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) Statewide Transportation Plan, and other state and regional agency plans. The vision builds on a sustainable recovery that restores coastal wetlands, constructs strategic levees, and reinvests in historic communities. New growth is focused in and around existing communities, and linked to investments in protection infrastructure, regional transportation, and economic zones.
