BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The 2016 budget for the Downtown Development District got unanimous approval from its board.

A 2.4 percent increase bumps the budget up to $656,000.

One of the big projects ahead is the city hall plaza project, which would create more green space from Galvez Plaza and behind city hall to Repentance Park.

The Metro Council has to first approve a $3.9 million request to begin work early next year.
