The second will be held in Lawton on Thursday, November 30 beginning at 5:30 p.m. The Lawton event will be held on the Cameron University campus in Room 211/212 of the McMahon Centennial Complex or student center located at 2800 West Gore Blvd.

Four remaining public meetings will be held in December in Poteau, Burns Flat, Tulsa and Miami.

The DEQ is attempting to get feedback on the potential projects that could be funded by the grant. It is also the lead agency for the grant program and is working with multiple partners to develop a statewide Priority Action Plan, a Comprehensive Action Plan and a Status Report. Through the two kinds of plans, DEQ will develop a statewide greenhouse gas inventory and creation of plans to reduce emissions from pollutants and greenhouse gases.
