The Lebetter Heights Historic Entertainment District Park sign now



This petition is a call for action to the Administration of the City of Shreveport for the construction of a City Park in Ledbetter Heights which will complete Proposition No.2 (Parks and Recreation) Citizens' Bond Issue which was approved by the Shreveport City Council February 13, 1996 (Resolution No.16 of 1996) and approved by the registered voters of Shreveport in a special election held April 20, 1996. The initial allotted funding for this project was $1,845,000.00. Currently, in the 2009 Capital Improvements Budget there is $1,334,000.00 available for this project to be completed.

We propose the construction of this Shreveport City Park on the land located on the West side of the 700 block of Lawrence Street. The perimeter of this area is Milam, Lawrence, Oakland and Hope Street which are two blocks west of the Municipal Auditorium. The Park, a component of the Shreveport Park and Recreation Department, will be focused on music and art as they relate to recreation. The park will house a stage for live performances as pictured in the scale model of the Ledbetter Heights Historic Entertainment District, community economic development project, proposed by Playaz and Playettes, Inc. Please go to www.myspace.com/tarumbae3 to see the Ledbetter Heights Historic Entertainment District Scale Model and Legend. This project will improve the quality of life for the citizens of Shreveport through the creation, exposure and access to music and the arts. This project will also add to the historic artistic ambiance of Ledbetter Heights as it relates to the new Cultural Arts District being adapted by the State of Louisiana for Shreveport. Further, the Park will promote tourism and increase revenue to this area. This project will be an added attraction to the movie industry personnel now living and working in our area. This Park will benefit and be utilized by a large cross section of the social,economic and racial demographics across the city of Shreveport,LA.

Now is the time to implement this project as Millennium Film Studio begins to break ground in the development of their Film Studio which is 5 blocks northeast of this proposed site.
