Metropolitan Planning Commission

Mission Statement


The Bossier City-Parish Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC) was established by Act 189 of 1954 of the Louisiana Legislature and authorized by the City of Bossier City and Bossier Parish to provide for comprehensive planning and orderly development in the City of Bossier City and the unincorporated part of Bossier Parish lying within 5 miles of the City.

MPC's mission is to provide land use management, planning and development services to protect the rights of residents and businesses choosing to locate in Bossier; to ensure public safety, health and welfare; to establish standards which are clearly communicated and consistently enforced; to preserve and enhance property values; to provide a positive climate for growth; to enhance the quality of life of area residents; to provide a public forum for thorough examination of development-related impacts; and to serve as a catalyst for broad-based community, business and public sector involvement in the planning process.
