Superior Grill is petitioning the MPC to rezone a portion of our neighborhood into an Urban Corridor, but the fight is not over yet. The rezoning will be discussed in a public hearing, and if you would like to keep the neighborhood zoned for residential - meaning zoned for homes that contribute to our community and our tax base as a city - then please take a moment to sign our petition.

While the stated aim of Superior's owners is to build two parking lots on the spaces where he bought and demolished homes, the reality is this rezoning allows him to build anything from another restaurant to a stage to office spaces there. There is also no enforceable provision to keep him from selling the lots to another developer that may want to build out more businesses, or a parking structure. This sets a terrible precedent for Shreveport: if a business can buy the home next to yours, bulldoze it, and then get it re-zoned to build anything from a parking lot to a liquor store to an apartment building, then only the gated neighborhoods are safe.
