MOBILE, Ala. -

On Tuesday, October 8, 2013, the Alabama Gulf Coast Recovery Council (AGCRC) released its Draft Restoration Project Information Sheet for public comment.  The 30-day public comment period will end on November 7, 2013.  

“I am committed to restoring the Alabama Gulf Coast, and public input is an important part of this process,” Governor Robert Bentley, chairman of the AGCRC, said. “The Council is pleased to provide this Project Information Sheet to the public for comment.  This is the next step in our long-term commitment to strengthen the Gulf Coast following the BP Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill.”

Once finalized, applicants who want to submit project suggestions will be asked to complete the information sheet online; however, special accommodations will be offered as necessary to those who may need special assistance.  The Draft Restoration Project Information Sheet may be found at www.restorealabama.org in the News & Events section.  Comments may be submitted online to agcrc@dcnr.alabama.gov or mailed to the Alabama Gulf Coast Recovery Council, 118 N. Royal Street, Suite 603, Mobile, AL  36602.

The Alabama Gulf Coast Recovery Council was created with the passage of the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities, and Revived Economies of the Gulf Coast States Act of 2012 (RESTORE Act). This legislation was passed by Congress to steer a percentage of the civil penalties levied against the responsible parties of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon incident directly to the Gulf Coast states to assist with recovery efforts.
