Bossier Development Expected To Bring In $3.5M In Annual Sales Tax Revenue
BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) — A new retail development planned for Bossier City is expected to bring in about $3.5 million in annual sales tax revenue.
The Times of Shreveport reports that city documents list the anchor tenant for the 250,000-square-foot development as a Kroger Marketplace, although a company spokesman told the newspaper the company has no immediate plans to build a Kroger Marketplace in Bossier City.
The list of stores on the documents also includes Michael’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Petco.
People in neighborhoods in the vicinity of the planned development along Bossier’s Airline Drive say the area greatly needs a grocery store.
The Bossier City Council is to consider measures related to the development next week, including a property annexation measure and road improvement projects.
