Reducing traffic

Beautifying Neigborhoods

Operation Fresh Start is part of the Mayor-President’s comprehensive strategy to combat blight in East Baton Rouge Parish. The quarterly effort was kicked off in 2018 and has yielded incredible results for our city and parish.

Fixing Drainage

What Your Neighbors Have to Say

"Just as she entered into office, the parish was at such a disarray, as many citizens were trying to recover from that devastating flood of 2016. She worked tirelessly to see that the citizens of East Baton Rouge Parish could get the assistance that they needed to restore their homes, as she too, was also a victim of that flood."

"[When] Mayor Broome was tasked with developing the community, she also recognized the disparities
that exist, especially between the South end of the parish and the North end of the parish, which was filled with  blight. She knew that something needed to be done to sustain and rebuild [the] community. Mayor Broome formed a plan of action with Build Baton Rouge to revitalize Plank Road, to dissolve the blight and restore the economy."

"A major [need] that was missing from the city was... medical care in the North
and Mid City areas of Baton Rouge. Mayor Broome listened to the community and The Baton
Rouge General at Mid City and the Medical Complex at Howell Place have now recently opened!"
