Public asked for input on Cross Bayou


The first major public event in the Cross Bayou Corridor planning process will be held Monday, July 14, at the Shreveport Convention Center.

The “Visioning Forum” will run from 1:30-5 p.m. inside the Red River Room.

This is the first of at least three opportunities for the public to learn about this project and offer input about the direction the redevelopment of this important downtown site.

The interactive session will provide information about the project and allow for direct interaction with the project team tasked with shaping an overall vision for this historic site.

The Great Expectations Shreveport-Caddo Master Plan highlights the Cross Bayou site for eventual redevelopment that would create a new, mixed-use residential neighborhood while ensuring public waterfront access and connectivity to downtown and adjacent neighborhoods.

The redevelopment of Cross Bayou will take into account the historic nature of the site, which contains the Waterworks Museum and is the site of a Civil Warera Confederate shipyard, as well as its close proximity to the Central Business District.

A Web site has been created:
