SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

The long, drawn out battle over a dog park in Shreveport is over.

According to City Council member Michael Corbin, Mayor Cedric Glover has signed the cooperative endeavor agreement that will allow for plans to move forward in building a dog park at the Stoner Recreational area along the Red River in Stoner Hill.

The Red River Waterway Commission and Shreveport Dog Park Alliance had both signed the agreement before, but Glover refused to sign off on the original agreement placing that park at Hamel Memorial Park. That prompted a lawsuit and a series of orders and appeals.

Glover's signature on the new agreement will also bring an and to the lawsuit.

$280,000 has been allocated by the Red River Waterway Commission for construction of the park under the agreement. The next step will be a bidding process for that work.

There is no target date for completion.
