BRDPW Permitting changes supported by HBA

By November 24, 2021Advocacy

HBA|GBR’s Board met last week and voted to support the proposed permitting ordinance and fee schedule to begin January 2022. The letter sent to the Metropolitan Council and media is attached for your reference.

After years of working with BRDPW, HBA’s permitting working group agreed to support an updated proposal spearheaded by Rachael Lambert, Department of Development.  All residential inspections will be outsourced to South Central Planning and Development Commission. 

We look forward to engaging you in future discussions that continue our progress to create a better Baton Rouge!
