Shreveport City Councilman James Flurry talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about this week's council work session and regular meeting, and the anticipated debate of the controversial Cross Bayou project.

The plan, which calls for a decade long development plan on the edge of downtown Shreveport, would include office, retail and living space, plus a multi-purpose stadium at a total cost of about $1.5 billion.

Flurry tells KEEL listeners that the proposal, which calls for the city to donate 88 acres of land, a $130 million tax credit and an environmental study and clean-up, is not popular among his constituents. "It's been an overwhelming no," he says. "I've been flooded  with emails and text messages and they're just not willing to do it."
