Can permit fees be waived?
In an effort to re-develop and beautify the Shreveport downtown and riverfront areas, the city has waived all permit fees incidental to the rehabilitation or renovation including any repairs, alterations, or additions of buildings and structures located within the Downtown Development District (DDD). Qualifying buildings and structures must have been constructed prior to 1960.

The waiver of permit fees does not exempt the applicant from obtaining all permits, approvals, plan reviews, and inspections required by applicable provisions of the Shreveport City Code.
