Wednesday, July 03, 2013

The first members of the Shreveport Historic Preservation Commission, including Blanchard Walker's own B. Slattery Johnson, Jr., have hit the ground running following a brief swearing-in ceremony at Government Plaza.

Representatives of Mayor Cedric Glover’s office, Councilman Jeff Everson and members of the public were on hand Thursday to see Lane Callaway, Leia Lewis Henderson, Slattery Johnson, Lane King and Billy Wayne receive the oath of office from City Attorney Terri Scott. The group met for nearly two hours, discussing their responsibilities and immediate priorities and projects.

``This is a significant step forward for Shreveport as we strive to be proactive in our efforts to preserve and protect our history,’’ Mayor Glover said. ``As Mayor, I am proud to help facilitate this effort and I believe this inaugural group of commissioners will set a standard of excellence that will serve our city well for many years to come.’’

The creation of the Historic Preservation Commission begins the implementation of many goals and recommendations related to the preservation of this community’s cultural identity, history and architecture, which are referenced in Great Expectations: Shreveport-Caddo 2030 Master Plan.
