State Representative elect Danny McCormick talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about Thursday's Caddo Commission meeting, where hundreds showed up to oppose the implementation of the Metropolitan Planning Commission's "2030 Master Plan," a design previously approved by that body.

McCormick says the plan, designed by liberal environmentalists," infringes on the rights of property owners in the area within five miles of the Shreveport city limits, a region affected by the plan's rules.

Listener responses from the Shreveport Security Systems KEEL Text Line:

'I live in Blanchard and I'm listening intently. I knew nothing of these rules until now."


"Okay, this UDC thing is 'only' 2,000 pages and impossible to read.I can see on you Facebook's over a foot high!"


"Thank you, Robert and Erin for your coverage of the UDC. We MUST take our property rights back and we will be victorious."

Following Thursday's meeting, Caddo Commission members said they will study citizen concerns - and the UDC code - for discussion at a later meeting.
