Our Mission
To transform the quality of life for all citizens who live, work and play in East Baton Rouge Parish by returning blighted properties to productive use, fostering redevelopment through facilitating partnerships, and creating a vibrant, globally competitive community while preserving character of place.
 

Background
The East Baton Rouge Redevelopment Authority (RDA) was created by the 2007 Louisiana Legislature. We are governed by a five-member Board ofCommissioners, appointed by the Mayor-President, Baton Rouge Area Foundation, and Baton Rouge Area Chamber. Our goals are to transform the quality of life for all citizens; foster redevelopment in disinvested areas; facilitate partnerships; create a vibrant, competitive community; and preserve and enhance sense of place.

The RDA began operations in February 2009 with the following priorities for its first year:
• Organizational development;
• Funding;

• Project development; and
• Community engagement and partnership building.


With these goals and priorities in mind, we carefully assembled a staff of twelve, and canvassed the Parish to view underserved areas and gain a better understanding of citizens’ visions, concerns, and priorities. This on-the-ground research revealed critical needs in our community that we started to address in the our first three years, such as attainable housing, gap financing, home and small business rehabilitation, brownfields redevelopment, and neighborhood planning. Together with our citizens and elected officials, we will continue to build a better East Baton Rouge Parish.
