Discussion could heat up this week on what should happen with the Metropolitan Planning Commission.

Councilman James Flurry wants a reorganization or even disbanding the group, but it also involves the parish. So, the Shreveport City Council and the Parish Commission will hold a joint meeting later this week to talk about the Metropolitan Planning Commission and its leadership.

The meeting will be held from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. at the Sky Box at Independence Stadium.

Here's what's on the agenda for the meeting:

I.     Welcome and Chair Comments - Jeff Everson, City Councilman

II.     MPC Financial Sustainability Study Presentation - Mark Sweeney, MPC Executive Director

III.     Open Discussion of City/Parish Participation on the MPC Board

IV.     Proposed Next Steps and Time Frame – Councilman Willie Bradford

Some local leaders have proposed doing away with the MPC and instead handling planning and zoning in-house. That idea has been on the table for several months. Both the city and the parish contribute to funding for the MPC and appoint members to the MPC Board.
