BATON ROUGE - Some city leaders want a hotel to revitalize a neglected part of Baton Rouge.

The river district connects downtown Baton Rouge and LSU on Nicholson Drive.

Businessmen and city officials want to upgrade the area with a huge retail and residential development.

At Monday's planning and zoning meeting tonight, council members will discuss whether to approve re-zoning to allow the project to get started.

Plans include a hotel, grocery store and trolley system to promote growth for the area.

News 2 will bring details as soon as the committee reaches a decision.
