A prime piece of Mid City Real estate will hit the market when the Capital Area Human Services District vacates its offices on Government Street across from White Star Market. The building, designed by renowned architect A. Hays Town, could see new life in its present form, or could be razed to make way for something completely different. Mid City real estate watchers will be keeping a close watch on what could become the most sought after piece of land on booming Government Street
Congratulations on being elected to serve as Mid City Redevelopment Alliance's next Board Chair! What made you interested in serving on the board of MCRA?
I was a resident of Mid City for two years prior to becoming a member and wanted to be a part of the positive change that was occurring in the community.
Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome joined dozens of volunteers during her annual "Operation Fresh Start" on February 16th. The project was a concentrated effort to reduce blight across our community through volunteer and City Parish efforts. Mid City volunteers picked up trash and went door to door, sharing information about Mid City programs, including the Mayor's "Blight Boot Camp" which will be held on June 1.
The mission of Mid City Redevelopment Alliance is to develop and promote the growth and renewal of Mid City Baton Rouge by attracting new and retaining current residents and businesses.
