After the Shreveport City Council met last week to discuss topics relating to the proposed Shreveport dog park, Mayor Cedric Glover is looking to repeal the dog park funding resolution.

In the repeal resolution, it states SPAR found the construction of a dog park at Hamel Memorial park is unfeasible for the following reasons:

  • Geometry
  • Topography
  • Presence of a dredge line easement
  • Potential for disruption of existing uses within the existing park
  • Adverse impact of development on a historic site
  • Negative impact on green agendas as identified by the Shreveport-Caddo 2030 Master Plan
  • Absence of existing amenities including but not limited to lighting, bathroom facilities, water and sewer
  • And additional considerations.

The repeal resolution also mentions the general start up and maintenance costs of a dog park at that location is more than the city than what is being offered by the Red River Waterway Commission.

The filing also says other cost efficient locations should be considered because a dog park would be a benefit to the quality of life in Shreveport.
