Taceaux and Tactical Urbanism

Wednesday, February 20th, 6pm-8pm at Parish Taceaux

Hey ReFormers!

As promised, we are going to hold monthly meetings so that we can all get together and talk about building a better community and finding ways to put those ideas into action!

What will we discuss? Glad you asked! If you've been following us for a while, you've seen us post about some of the incremental improvements downtown like sidewalk patios, artwalks, and parklets. Some of these fall into the category of tactical urbanism, where we test out an idea to see how it affects the way we interact with our built environment.

We think tactical urbanism and other incremental test beds are an important way to improve our city, and we hope you'll join us at Parish Taceaux tomorrow, Wednesday, February 20 from 6pm to 8pm to talk about how you could do the same thing in your own neighborhood.

Let's cultivate a more livable Shreveport together.

Hey ReFormers!

It's almost time for our biggest park cleanup yet! Highland Park has come so far in the last 18 months as we have combatted erosion, surveyed for neighborhood needs, and brainstormed the best way to spend $200,000 of bond money for capital improvements.

On Saturday, April 14th from 9am to 2pm, we will be setting up new erosion control measures near the new walking paths, collecting trash, planting trees, and fixing up some of the disc golf amenities just in time to enjoy the spring and summer months.

We've partnered up with many exciting groups including Highland Restoration Association, the Warrior Network, Shreveport Green, and the Shreveport-Bossier Disc Golf Union to help get the park in shape.

Even with the help of our partners, we need your help to reach our goal of 50 people to come out to get the work done. Be one set of hands of the many to make for light work! Bring a friend!

P.S. - Be sure to bring work or garden gloves, a hat, sunglasses or protective eyewear with you. We will have a few extra sets on hand. ReForm and our partners will be bringing the tools and materials!
