Mayor Holden unveils city data website
BATON ROUGE - City-parish leaders released details Wednesday about a new website that would display maps full of data about East Baton Rouge.
Mayor-President Kip Holden said the site, BRCityKey.com, would have demographic information such as neighborhood education levels and crime rates, as well as the location of services like bus stops, libraries, and parks. The site would also have a forum for community discussion and to publicize community events.
Holden said the project is part of his Healthy City initiative, and would be a useful tool for community organizations as well as government agencies.
The project was funded by a combination of public and private groups.
