Three members of the growing “LOOP IT” movement in Allendale Neighborhood of Shreveport, Louisiana have filed a complaint against NLCOG and its representatives. The following letter was sent on December 17, 2012 following the three stage 1 public meetings held during December 2012 to promote the proposed 3.5 mile, $500 million, I-49 Inner City Connector (12.17.12 complaint to NLCOG signed).
This week the Shreveprot Times ran a small article that was forwarded to me. This article quotes NLCOG as stating that 60% of the votes using their cards favored a “no build” option and that after they talked to those voting that fell to 50%. What did they say to pursuade voters to alter their vote? It is our understanding that NLCOG did not count the write-in ballots of LOOP IT that numbered over 100 uncounted ballots proposing the existing loop and a new ground level business boulevard.
