NLCOG Meeting Cancelled & Larkin Development to Appeal MPC Decision

May 17, 2012

Two items of interest to those of us who care about the future of 3132.

  1. NLCOG’s Transportation Committee meeting scheduled for Thursday, May 17, at 10 a.m. has been cancelled. If you were planning to attend, please make a note of this.
  2. We have received notice that Larkin Development will appeal the unanimous decision of the Metropolitan Planning Commission that denied him a paved road into his development off East Flournoy Lucas. The MPC clearly “got it” that there is a study in progress and , thus, no has route identified, so it would be foolhardy to grant a road permit until a route is identified. We felt that this was coming because Larkin and Glover have been “priming the pump” with the City Council in the event the MPC denied the request.

    This appeal is coming up next Tuesday, May 22, at the City Council’s regular meeting at 3 p.m. If you want to offer a written response for the record, you must submit it to the City Council clerk by Friday, May 18. You may submit it to the City Council at Government Plaza, 4tth Floor, 505 Travis St. Shreveport, LA 71101. You may also attend the City Council meeting on the 22nd and sign up to speak. The MPC, appointees of the mayor, denied the request. How will the duly elected city council representatives (who are responsible to the people of Shreveport who voted for the bond issue to extend 3132 to the Port) respond to this request? You may think that this is a slam-dunk for the Coalition, but we have learned over years of experience and review of thousands and thousands of documents, that what any citizen may consider logical is not necessary reality.

Please help us voice the concerns of people throughout the community who voted for the extension to the Port and who have expected 3132 to be extended. We need to stand united to block any action that could possibly threaten the future of 3132. A developer’s assurance that his road will not affect it seems hollow, particularly when you consider that development in the previously-identified path of 3132 has prevented its extension.
