City halts demolition of Fair Grounds Field
New petition filed seeking an end to the work
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — The City of Shreveport has ordered its contractor to stop the demolition of Fair Grounds Field.
Henderson Construction Services told KSLA News 12 that it got the word in a call from the city about 2 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3.
The halt to demolition comes days after a new petition was filed seeking an end to the work at Fair Grounds Field.
John W. Lowe and Friends of Fair Grounds Field LLC filed a petition on Sept. 30 seeking a temporary restraining order, a preliminary injunction, and a permanent injunction.
The temporary restraining order was signed Monday, Oct. 3.
A hearing on the matter has been rescheduled, for Oct. 14 in Caddo District Court.
Below is the petition filed by Lowe and Friends of Fair Grounds Field LLC:
The city’s order for its contractor to stop work came a week after Harper Law Firm demanded a cease and desist for the Fair Grounds Field demolition.
That letter was sent to Mayor Adrian Perkins’ office, as well as other city officials and state agencies, late in the day Monday, Sept. 26.
