Tipton Associates was retained by West Baton Rouge Parish to complete their comprehensive plan in a twelve month timeframe including 3 district plans within the overall parish plan. The parish was experiencing growth in both the residential and commercial markets due to shifts in population following Louisiana hurricanes. Tipton Associates led the team, including specialty consultants Sasaki and PESI, through a comprehensive public outreach and marketing campaign to educate and engage citizens, stakeholders, administration and elected officials. Major elements of the plan included community enhancement planning, economic development planning, land use planning, infrastructure planning, and implementation planning. Key issues identified at the onset included wetlands and floodplains, lack of sufficient transportation networks, agricultural preservation, and consensus on new developments.
