Public Meeting on Zoo Relocation

By  | 
BREC is holding  community meetings to collect input from residents across the parish on the proposal to create the first of its kind regional park at Greenwood and to find a more sustainable location for the Baton Rouge Zoo. The BREC Commission will vote on whether to move forward or reject the staff's recommendations at its regularly scheduled meeting August 24 at 5 p.m.  
The meetings will begin at 6 p.m. and include opportunities for residents to review potential amenities at both locations, ask questions of staff, vote on the ideas they like best as well as share ideas of their own. At 6:30, they will view a presentation from BREC Superintendent Carolyn McKnight, and provide public comments.
The Central meeting will be held on August 1 at the Central Library on Joor Road.
For those who are unable to attend in person, the meetings will be streamed live on BREC's website at and will be broadcast on Facebook Live. Viewers are welcome to send in questions on BREC's Facebook page: @brecparks. BREC will also continue to collect information through an online survey
