Enhanced Livability Progress
ENHANCE OUR REGION'S LIVABILITY
Enhancing the region’s livability starts by building community pride. It also requires a dedication to improving the region’s infrastructure – from bridges to broadband to bike lanes – and identifying creative approaches to funding livability initiatives. As these investments take shape and pride in the community grows, the region’s actual and perceived livability should also improve.

POSITIVE PERCEPTIONS FOCUS
Based on stakeholder input, the Baton Rouge Area suffers from an overall negative perception of itself. Eliminating this narrative will have positive effects on the region’s ability to attract talent and businesses. This outcome leverages the work of all of the BRING IT! initiatives to bring more positivity to the Baton Rouge Area. Its progress will be measured by local and national perception studies.
