Baton Rouge capital improvement plan to be put to vote

July 23, 2008: The Baton Rouge Metro Council voted July 23, 2008, to send Mayor-President Kip Holden’s $989 million capital improvement proposal to voters in November.

Holden successfully fought off efforts by three council members to split the proposed bond issue and its supporting taxes—a half-cent sales tax increase and a 9.9-mill property tax—into two parts. The plan proposes $391 million for downtown projects, including a riverfront theme park and the expansion of the River Center, plus a new police station, new jail, drainage improvements, and synchronization of traffic signals.

Holden said the proposal will create thousands of new jobs and bring more business to the city.[1]
