KSLA News 12 Editorial: July 22, 2013-Shreveport Common

There was good news this week about Shreveport Common.

This is a nine block area near Downtown that is slowly but surely being reclaimed and redeveloped through the Shreveport Regional Arts Council.

The good news is a $150,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

How will the money be used?

The idea is to have special events from art exhibits to live music to a fresh food market. Events that will attract a cross section of people in the community to experience first hand this area of town that is being transformed.

There is already a lot taking place in this area. Renovations are underway at the Municipal Auditorium. The near-by Historic Oakland Cemetery is being preserved and the Old Central Fire Station has already been saved and turned into a headquarters for the arts.

Can't wait to see what happens next.

I'm James Smith.

    I asked for your thoughts on providing an extra $150,000 for overtime for Shreveport patrol officers. Most of you are in support of the increased patrols but question if it will be enough. Here are some of your responses.
