Bond Commission frees up money for lakes renovation
BATON ROUGE- The State Bond Commission has freed up $2 million to renovate the lakes in Baton Rouge.
The Baton Rouge Lakes Master Plan, which is being vetted at public hearings, will need about $40 million in total. It'll include dredging the lakes and using that soil to create more land, improving water quality and creating parks.
Lauren Crapanzano Jumonville, project manager for the Baton Rouge Area Foundation, says the $2 million made available Thursday will be used to convert the master plan into the documents and permits needed to start construction. The foundation hopes to have those contracts in place by the end of the year.
