|Dr. Bruce Sharky|
Dr. Sharky pointed out that the following proposals and materials haven't been gathered together to create an overall narrative and full plan. The students completed this work in one month as part of a class, and there is work left to be done to create something with fuller impact. We're hopeful that could be done by finding funding for a graduate student to work on that task during the spring semester. The NPS intimated they could help with that but haven't gotten back to Dr. Sharky about it yet.

But certainly this work has a lot of value that can be developed much further--and isn't that just what we'd say about our city? Links to the proposals and miscellaneous materials are below. We hope you find them as inspiring as do Ian and Loren.

(500 MB, but worth it: a full plan for the southeast side to leverage the existing bike paths and provoke demands for similar facilities throughout the city)
by James Mann et al.
(6 MB, an easy loader with big downtown relevance; along Cross Bayou to the north, and aside a forested railway to the south)

(122 MB, but again, worth it: the marketing of Shreveport through the artistic representation and design of our city; check out that bridge!)
categorization and documentation of drainage canal types (wow!), some potential routes, a greenway plan along southern Fern Ave., the route and programming, analysis of city vegetation, sites from Columbia Park to Querbes.
So, if you're interested in discussing these, join us at our holiday themed meeting Monday evening at 6:00 in the Wright Math Building. Bring your own beverage and/or a nibbly to share, or just yourself. We'd love to hear your thoughts on these proposals and how to move them forward.
