The Northwest Louisiana Council of Governments (NLCOG) and the City of Shreveport were awarded a Choice Neighborhood Planning Grant through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in 2010 to begin an integrated, comprehensive, and inclusive planning process for the Allendale, Ledbetter Heights, and West Edge neighborhoods. The planning grant enabled the co-applicants to bring together residents and local stakeholders to develop strategies that address housing, neighborhood, and social/education issues to improve the quality of life and well-being of the community.
