SRAC to get NEA Grant
The Shreveport Regional Arts Council will be getting an "Our Town" grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. It's one of only 51 such grants awarded nationally. The $100-thousand grant will be used to develop the techinal design for the city's first interactive transportation and information substation. "CommonLink," as it will be called, will be a central part of Shreveport Common and will include a bus stop and shelter, taxi stand, GPS-driven "I-shuttle" stop, bike racks, charging stations, wi-fi and more. It will be located on that triangle-shaped piece of city-owned property just to the west of the old Central Fire Station.
