The Community Planning department manages Shreveport and Caddo Parish’s comprehensive planning process. It prepares plans and studies used to guide future growth and physical development in the area. Considerable community outreach is performed to ensure meaningful public participation and engagement in all projects, plans, and studies. The five major areas of focus for Shreveport and Caddo Parish’s community planning efforts include the Master Plan and planning of the Riverfront, Neighborhoods, Transportation, and Environment.
The Great Expectations Master Plan, the first comprehensive master plan since 1957, is designed to put Shreveport-Caddo on a new strategic path for the 21st Century toward more jobs, households, smarter growth patterns and a better quality of life. This comprehensive master plan provides the framework for seizing opportunities to make the Shreveport community better, while preserving all the existing things we love about Shreveport and Caddo Parish.
The monitoring report is intended to outline the progress of implementing the above Great Expectations Master Plan. The reporting period includes the time period from adoption of the comprehensive master plan in January 2011 to present.
