FUTUREBR Implementation

FUTUREBR Implementation

Thousands of East Baton Rouge Parish citizens have participated in the FUTUREBR process and they have clearly expressed a desire for quality-of-life improvements. The Planning Commission currently serves as the lead monitoring agency for the implementation of the FUTUREBR Plan. The Commission works closely with approximately 33 agencies to ensure that community solutions are coordinated.

Cooperation between City-Parish departments, the private sector (including property owners and the development community), civic organizations, universities, non-profit organizations, and many other key institutions is key to successfully implementing the FUTUREBR Comprehensive Plan.

The following document is a master list of all the goals and action items from FUTUREBR and the lead agency that we identified to carry out the action.
