I reported yesterday that there will be a meeting in Beaumont where officials will meet the public to discuss the possibility of the Neches River receiving the federal Wild and Scenic designation.
There will be a second informational meeting in Lufkin this Tuesday the 28th to discuss the issue. Anyone interested in what it would mean for the area if the Neches receives the designation is welcome to attend. Attila Bality of the National Park Service and Deborah Caffin of the U.S. Forest Service, the same two speakers who will be at the Beaumont meeting on Monday, will be speaking in Lufkin on the matter and will take questions from audience members.
The meeting will be held at 6:00pm Tuesday in the Lufkin City Council Chambers located at 300 East Shepherd, Room 102.
I would very much appreciate a report on how the meetings went from anyone who is able to attend.
