BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Elected officials talked about the accomplishments and lingering challenges facing North Baton Rouge with the first of what they hope will become a regular series of meetings involving the public.

Impact North Baton Rouge, also known as the Baton Rouge North Economic Development District, hosted the town hall on Thursday, June 18. It was held on Zoom.

Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, and Council members Tara Wicker (District 10), Chauna Banks (District 2), LaMont Cole (District 7), Erika L. Green (District 5), and Donna Collin-Lewis (District 6) all attended and provided information about what they’ve done in their respective districts.

The challenges had common threads. In particular, every council member expressed a need for a major grocery store.

WAFB’s Donovan Jackson will have more on this story coming up on our later broadcasts.
