East Baton Rouge Comprehensive Master Plan: Baton Rouge, LA

Client: The City of Baton Rouge

Summary: This comprehensive plan focuses on all the key elements in developing a vital and sustainable city, including traffic analysis, public transit development, land use changes, public service needs, housing development, storm water rehabilitation, wetland protection, park access, and watershed analysis. As part of a larger team, Dana Brown & Associates, Inc.* focused on the environmental and recreational aspects of the plan. The key goals in the Watershed Protection Plan were to identify on a micro-watershed scale the overall hydrologic health, both existing and potential environmental land value, and vulnerability to change for each watershed. The Park Access and Availability Analysis key goals were to determine which areas within the parish were lacking in public parks and recreation, a tool that could then be used when determining locations for development of future parks. The completed plan serves as a resource for the city to use when considering development proposals, obtaining grants, and prioritizing community needs.
