“Lancaster, CA transformed its downtown in just 8 months by redesigning its main street from a mini-highway to a tree-lined boulevard.”

“For the cost of just $11.5M, the project has generated $273M in economic output since 2010, creating 800 jobs, and nearly doubling tax revenue!”

Mayor proposes a 20% increase in water and sewer costs in 2024 - NewsBreak 11/29/2023

City of Shreveport Government! This wont work for Shreveport’s Asset Limited Income Constrained Employed (ALICE) residents. The working poor. The silent majority of Shreveport. No way!

The reason we are screwed is because we began sprawling to the size of Detroit in the 1980s but we have less than 1/3 the population of Detroit to pay for everything including 2 sewage treatment plants here. This is impossible and dead on arrival in .

Shreveport, pay attention.

One of these development styles is less than a century old and has drained local wealth for decades, while the other is thousands of years old and continues to build local wealth.

Highway Boondoggle report features Shreveport again for an update on the I49 ICC | Allendale Strong 11/10/2023

Shreveport has been recognized around the nation in another major report.

"As noted in our last update, residents of Allendale have proposed an alternative project: upgrading Route 71, already used by drivers to connect to I-49, into a multiuse “business boulevard.”

According to community group Allendale Strong, this would cost just a fraction of the cost of the I-49 cut-through, while strengthening existing communities and bolstering local businesses.

As of September 2023, although the Federal Highway Administration requires all “reasonable alternatives to be considered,” the Northwest Louisiana Council of Governments (NLCOG) continues to refuse to add this proposed boulevard to the scope of the project...

However, in 2023, after fierce opposition from residents concerned about the highway’s environmental and community impacts, NLCOG’s Transportation Policy Committee suggested another alternative route – 3A – presented as an alternative that would minimize the damage inflicted on the Allendale neighborhood."

A question came up at last night’s Allendale Strong meeting about why our street lights are mostly dark. It’s because we have sprawled to a land area the size of Detroit, but have less than 1/3 of the citizens to pay for everything.

Sprawl is why we can’t keep up our streets too.

Yes to all of this. Finding common ground and choosing battles carefully is important. So is finding a common language to communicate with one another.

Shreveport, we can do better!

Safe, walkable streets are productive streets. Let's build more of them!

After WW2 we got really good at building highways to connect places, but we lost the ability to build places that connect us to one another.

One is built for people, the other is built for motor vehicle storage.

Agreed.

“Automobiles are often conveniently tagged as the villains responsible for the ills of cities and the futilities of city planning. But the destructive effect of automobiles are much less a cause than a symptom of our incompetence at city building.”

There is still time to make your comment on I-49 and save Shreveport from gouging another highway through our city.

The Role of the Strong Citizen 10/26/2023

There are planet of obvious needs in neighborhoods all over Shreveport, but it’s still important to ask people what do they need most for instance Allendale residents want their existing streets, especially Ford street, repaired before we build anything new.

The Role of the Strong Citizen Strong Citizens may not all be qualified to size a support beam or write the specification for a concrete mixture, but they collectively are the greatest sensors of what is happening in a city. 

Austinites rally to hit the brakes on I-35 expansion project 10/25/2023

Austinites rally to hit the brakes on I-35 expansion project There are more and more people coming into Austin, and their cars need somewhere to go, too. It seems to some that widening Interstate 35 would allow for the easier passage of traffic, meaning fewer delays. But some Austinites feel it's not worth the environmental consequences — and may not even s...
