East Baton Rouge is updating its Comprehensive Plan
Where will it take us? You decide...

Our Comprehensive Plan is the parish's operating manual. It is used by the City-Parish to help guide growth and development, and to help decide where new jobs, homes and transportation investments will go.

This spring and summer, FUTUREBR hosted workshops and open houses to gain a better understanding about what people want EBR to be like in the future. Then, future scenarios for EBR were created and used to answer the question, "If we do this, what would happen?"

The scenarios were evaluated using indicators that measure specific outcomes for the future, like daily travel time, job locations, available housing options and potential revenue from development.

With this information, along with feedback they received from the public, they were able to get an idea of where current trends are leading us, and what kinds of actions they can take that will make changes people want.

Now it's time to review the themes that were heard at the workshops and open houses and get your feedback on alternatives to current trends.
