Shreveport Common > Implementation

From Vision Plan for Revitalization to UNCOMMON Cultural Community

The Shreveport Common Vision Plan (2012) has been in Implementation Phase for almost 3 years and so much has already been accomplished with $40M of the total $100M budget already completed or started. This is made possible through public private partnerships and the collaboration of over 30 partners.
