Centenary Invites Neighbors and Organizations to Discuss Bike Paths and Nature Trails

Saturday, April 16th, 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Centenary College and ABetterShreveport will host a meeting of community residents and organizations to discuss bike path and nature trail possibilities. Potentially, a network of bike paths and routes would go through Centenary and surrounding neighborhoods and connect to the newly developed "Coates Bluff" trail that now goes from Sevier St. to Valencia Park by Magnet High School, and which could eventually connect to the bike path that currently runs along the river.

At Saturday's meeting, urban planners from a local architectural firm have volunteered to partner with Centenary and ABetterShreveport.org to facilitate a discussion among residents, neighbor associations, and local organizations about what the bike and trail network could be. The meeting will be to gauge support for the potential project, as well as to get feedback and suggestions. If you have any thoughts or feelings about these possible trails and bike paths, please consider joining us at the meeting.

The meeting will be held on the Centenary College campus, in room 201 of the Hurley Music Building, located next to MaGale Library along Woodlawn Ave. on the Centenary College campus.

Coffee and refreshments will be served. Thank you for considering our invitation. If you have any questions, feel free to call Loren Demerath, Executive Director of ABetterShreveport.org at 840-9703, or email at ldemerath@gmail.com.
