LSU Lakes Project

June 27, 2014

The Baton Rouge Area Foundation has launched a master plan to save the lakes and make them an even better gathering place for the community.

The public is invited to presentations by four final teams that are vying to create the master plan. People at the meeting will have a chance to ask questions and to write up their comments to help the selection committee pick one planning team.

Meeting details: this coming Monday, June 30, 2014, at the Manship Theatre from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., with an hour for lunch. Each team has nearly an hour to present, including time for a Q&A.

You can view the work of the finalists here.

If you are attending, you can RSVP by clicking the invitation below.

Also, the Foundation asks that you get updates on the Baton Rouge Lakes Facebook page or on Twitter @BatonRougeLakes. Click here for more information.
