Smart Growth

Policy and Code Audit Report: Baton Rouge, LA

In March 2004, under a cooperative agreement with EPA, a Smart Growth Leadership Institute project team visited Baton Rouge, Louisiana, for meetings with stakeholders including developers, local political leaders, and planning staff. Policy and Code Audit Report: Baton Rouge, LA (2004) presents analysis, findings, and potential actions based on the site visit, interviews, and feedback from the stakeholders and planning staff. 

The project used the Smart Growth Leadership Institute's Policy Audit and Code Audit. See more scorecards to help evaluate municipal-level policies, specific projects, and community components on EPA's Smart Growth Scorecards page.
