The final presentation for the redevelopment plan of Barksdale Boulevard was revealed tonight.

The final public meeting on the plan was held at the CenturyLink Center.

Bossier City contracted with the planning firm S.W.A. out of Houston, Texas.


Their goal is to create more pedestrian walkways within neighborhoods and connect existing trails.

City of Bossier Project Coordinator Pam Glorioso says, “So a person if they're biking or walking doesn't have to jump out into a thoroughfare, they'll be able to connect within their own neighborhoods."

The next step is to finalize the plan and take it to city council.
