BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – The EBR Metropolitan Council is meeting on Tuesday afternoon.
Council members are expected to discuss development plans for a proposed residential and commercial high-rise.
The high-rise is set to be built at the busy intersection of Highland Rd. and Bluebonnet Blvd.
Some local residents believe that the project will only create more flooding and traffic issues.
