NLCOG Update On 3132

September 21, 2011

Louisiana Highway 3132 was on the Northwest Louisiana Council of Governments agenda for the Sept. 15 meeting. The start of the meeting was delayed for nearly 20 minutes due to a lack of a quorum. Eventually, Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover arrived, giving the council enough voting members to establish a quorum.

NLCOG Executive Director Kent Rogers gave a report on the progress of the Stage 0 / Stage 1 Feasibility and Environmental Studies. Rogers gave clarification about the length of time needed for the environmental assessment. The time cannot be compressed into 9 to 12 months from the anticipated 18 months. The 18-month timeframe includes time for various agencies to review the information and requires that each get 30 to 45 days to review it. Rogers said that he and the NLCOG staff have “made the appropriate answers and corrections.”

Rogers indicated that NLCOG had arranged a meeting with DOTD, Larkin Development and The Glen as previously requested by the MPO at a previous meeting. There was general consensus that NLCOG had done what it had been instructed to do and that negotiations between those two entities do not require NLCOG participation.

Concerned about public access to information regarding proceedings, Finish 3132 Coalition spokesman and Twelve Oaks resident Elliott Stonecipher indicated that the public and Coalition has had difficulty understanding “all procedures by which NLCOG does business.” NLCOG attorney Jerry Jones said he would meet with Stonecipher to explain the Council’s procedures.
