L to R: BREC Supt. Corey Wilson; Geno McLaughin, Build Baton Rouge Community Engagement Specialist; and Jarwanda Harris, Partnership Specialist for the U.S. Census Bureau.

BATON ROUGE - As an extension of our outreach strategy and to better inform the public of agency functions and programs, Build Baton Rouge Community Engagement Specialist, Geno McLaughin; spoke at Glen Oaks Baptist Church, for the District 5 Quarterly Meeting hosted by Councilwoman Erika Green.

As the Plank Road Project nears completion, we continue to find ways to garner input from residents and report back our findings. Many of the questions fielded were in regards to blight, our popular Roof Reset Program, and plans for the Plank Road Corridor including the Glen Oaks/ Zion City neighborhoods. Also in attendance were BREC Superintendent Corey Wilson, Assistant Chief Administrative Officer to the Mayor, Dr. Pamela Ravare-Jones, and Assistant Chief Administrative Officer to the Mayor, Kelvin Hill.

McLaughin will present the final draft of the Plank Road Masterplan at the District 5 Quarterly meeting on November 7 at 6 p.m.
