In 2008, the Haynesville Shale natural gas play came on the scene and had a voluminous economic impact upon our entire region. Our city and parish has also experienced tremendous retail, restaurant and residential growth since the turn of the century. In turn, This has resulted in the growth and expansion of a multitude of developments, new and expanded schools and various other supporting entities. And, Bossier City (and the region) has also seen the tremendous growth of Bossier Parish Community College (BPCC), one of the nation’s premier community colleges. BPCC’s expansion to a beautiful new state of the art campus during the last decade has most definitely aided in their growth. The Cyber Innovation Center (and all of the supporting technological businesses and industries) is taking us in a whole new and very important economically diversified technologically based direction. All of this could not have been done without great leadership.
Great leadership is a must! From governmental bodies and political leaders, to law enforcement and community/civic organizations, great leadership has been what has made our community what it is today! We are also blessed with a wonderful Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Foundation that have both paved the way for so many great things to happen.
