BATON ROUGE - After months of discussion, today could be another step forward for Baton Rouge Zoo and Greenwood Park. 

BREC is hoping to finalize the zoning plan in a meeting Wednesday evening. 

The master plan includes a brand new entrance to set the tone for the zoo's new look. Plans also include a new playground for Greenwood Park and rezoning to bring the two attractions together. 

Phase one of the project will cost BREC about $30 million in savings. If approved, construction would begin sometime in the fall of 2020.
