Councilwoman interested in expanding B.R. limits
BATON ROUGE - A member of the East Baton Rouge Parish Metro Council has her eye on expanding the Baton Rouge city limits.
East Baton Rouge Parish is made up of four municipalities - Baton Rouge, Zachary, Baker and Central. Areas not inside those city limits are considered unincorporated.
The Advocate reports that at a recent Metro Council meeting, Councilwoman C. Denise Marcelle said she is working with the parish attorney's office to find out what is required to annex additional areas into the city limits.
Asked for details, Marcelle called it a work in progress, but said she's interested in such areas as the Towne Center at Cedar Lodge shopping center and the Gardere area.
