BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) – Community members can join Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome and the MOVEBR program managers to adhere to plans to improve Scotlandville on Monday, Jan. 10 at the Jewel J. Newman Community Center from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Projects managers, city planners, engineers will share ideas on which areas new sidewalks or parks may take place and more.

The MOVEBR program will provide exhibits and information on the Elm Grove Garden Sidewalks Project that will build new sidewalks on each side of Elm Grove Garden Drive from Blount Road to Rosenwald Road. This project proposes to enhance pedestrian mobility by constructing new sidewalks, providing ADA compliance and accommodating bus transit stops, according to Office of Mayor-President.

The open house is also in partnership with The Recreation and Park Commission for the Parish of East Baton Rouge (BREC) and the Center for Planning Excellence (CPEX) to also contribute plans for the Scotlandville community improvements.

BREC will provide information on the Scotlandville Parkway Master Plan, a project that spans approximately three miles from Airline to Scenic Highway and features a large park at the southern end and several smaller “pocket parks” along the length of the parkway.

CPEX has been working on the Scotlandville Community Strategic Plan to guide future growth in Scotlandville and a plan to improve accessibility at the Jewel J. Newman Center.
