The Norfolk District Regulatory Branch is proposing to hold monthly meetings for Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Design-Build contractors (post-award) and localities operating under the VDOT Locally Administered Projects (LAP) Program.

These meetings will provide localities supported by the VDOT LAP program and VDOT Design-Build contractors (post-award) an opportunity to present projects to the Norfolk District Regulatory Office and obtain preapplication feedback that can be incorporated into the project prior to submittal of a Joint Permit Application (JPA).

Please note that Corps comments do not supersede VDOT contracts, technical requirements, and/or any prior environmental commitments applied to the project.  These meetings are organized and led by the Corps to provide feedback regarding the Corps’ permitting process only.  

These meetings will occur on the second Monday of each the month, from 1-2pm, beginning May 13, 2024.  

To have your project added to a monthly agenda, please email Kim Prisco-Baggett at Kimberly.A.Prisco-Baggett@usace.army.mil with your request, including:

•    Project name
•    Project location
•    Type of project:  Design-Build or LAP
•    Funding source
•    The desired meeting month
•    Whether you’d like VDOT to be present
•    Is there potential for Endangered Species, Historic Properties, and/or Corps of Engineers Civil Works Projects within or close to your project?  

Once we have confirmed scheduling, we also ask that you submit the presentation at least 1 week in advance of the meeting.  This will help us provide better feedback during the meeting.

If you have any questions about this process, contact Kim Prisco-Baggett at Kimberly.A.Prisco-Baggett@usace.army.mil.
