Of special note is that the study focused only on the original 24.8 acres of the Walker Place Development. The economic impact of just the 24,8 acres over a ten year period was estimated at $500,000,000.
The last paragraph of page ii states:
"The cumulative revenues expected to be received by Bossier City during the five-year construction of the multi-purpose development are expected to be $261,289,136."
If the Bossier City Council had not derailed the Walker Place Development over a lone curb cut in August, 2006, Bossier City would be nearing revenues of $261Million+.
How could $261 Million have benefitted Bossier City? For starters, more police officers, more life-saving paramedic fire fighters, lower taxes....[Sigh]
