North Baton Rouge NOW Blue Ribbon Commission

Metro Councilwoman Chauna Banks will hold a press conference on Wednesday, March 2 at 10:00 a.m. at 222 St. Louis Street, 9th Floor in Council Chambers to announce the members of the #NBRNOW Blue Ribbon Commission.

The first announcement of the Commission was at a Town Hall Meeting several weeks ago held at The Offices of Champion Medical Center, located on Howell Place.

##NBRNOW Blue Ribbon Commission is a group of exceptional people appointed to study and recommend policy to address the scarcity in economic development and health care opportunities in and around North Baton Rouge,” said Banks.

The Commission’s purpose is to use their expertise to issue findings and/or strategies which can then be used by our governmental authorities to address the economic and healthcare disparities north of Florida Boulevard.

Banks stated, “We must ensure we have done all that we can to get the right people to provide the right answers in making recommendations for the future of the people who live, work and play in the northern part of our city.”
