Spring general meeting

Let’s talk blight

6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 16 at Noel United Methodist Church, 520 Herndon St.

Join us for a discussion on reducing blight in the Highland neighborhood. Terrence Green, Shreveport’s interim property standards director, will offer insight into how his department processes complaints and the best way for residents to report dilapidated structures in the community. He’ll be joined by Adam Bailey, community planning and design manager for the Shreveport Metropolitan Planning Commission, who will talk about the newly created Historic Preservation Overlay Districts and how the added layer of regulations applies to Highland. Tom Arceneaux, with the Shreveport Implementation and Redevelopment Authority, also will join the conversation.

Come see us at Shop for Good 🛍️

Be sure to stop by our table at Shop for Good on Saturday, May 4, at the Uptown Shopping Center, 4800 Line Ave. In addition to being able to donate to our Give For Good campaign, which raises money for our senior outreach grants, you’ll be able to grab some fun goodies to show your #HighlandPride. We’ll also have information on upcoming projects, and many of our board members will be on hand to share about neighborhood history and what our organization has been up to this year.

Join us for the Great Highland Cleanup

We’ve got another neighborhood cleanup planned this month, and we’d love for you to join us!

As part of Shreveport Green’s Great American Cleanup, Highland Restoration Association will be meeting at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 13 at Columbia Park for a neighborhood cleanup. We’ll divide up to pick up trash along the streets surrounding the park.

We provide the trash bags, grabbers, gloves and water. We just need you!

In addition to picking up trash, we’re focusing this cleanup on removing tires from around the neighborhood. If you know of a location or have some of your own, email us at [email protected]mail.com with the location, and we’ll pick them up that morning.
