Moratorium on development extended for six months in East Baton Rouge Parish
BATON ROUGE - The moratorium on development in East Baton Rouge Parish has been extended for six more months due to flooding concerns.
Parish Transportation and Drainage Director Fred Raiford spoke at Wednesday's Metro Council meeting and said even though the group is asking for six months, it is not going to take that long to start approving development contracts.
The Metro Council approved the ordinance on the basis that if the Transportation and Drainage Department finalizes its plans before the six-month period expires, the moratorium will be lifted.
Raiford said there will be a public informational meeting held Tuesday at the Goodwood Library.
