Bossier City is located on the eastern bank of the Red River and is closely tied to its larger sister city Shreveport on the opposite bank. The Shreveport – Bossier City metropolitan area is the center of the region known as the Ark-La-Tex.On April 20, 2017, in their joint "State of Bossier" address, Mayor Lo Walker and Bossier Parish Police Jury President Bob Brotherton called the growth of the city and parish is "outstanding". With 69,000 in a 2015 study by Louisiana State University, Bossier City has become the sixth largest in the state and the fastest growing one. Walker said that the city and the parish "work extremely close together, and our business and civic leaders and military make us an outstanding parish.” The parish grew at 19 percent; the city at 10 percent. According to the Bossier Economic Development Foundation, the city could potentially reach 80,000 by 2019. Ongoing projects contributing to growth include the Walter O.
