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.
