South Baton Rouge wants to secede and form its own city

The new city could immediately be one of the largest in the state with a population almost equal to Lafayette. All of this over a school district.

LINK

Bad idea in my opinion. I'm all about neighborhood or local schools, but this is not the way to do it.

Would the OT sign the petition?

Yeah, not going to happen.

LOL at trying to annex the problems away.

This is proof that BR is 30 years behind the rest of the country. Every other city in the country has experienced this sort of knee-jerk white flight.

Every other city in the country doesn't have the bizarro world school districts of Baton Rouge.

The lazy ones are the ones that run from the problems rather than fight them. Moving is the easy/lazy/cheeper option.

Lets face it, it's expensive to live in a quality part of BTR and send your kids to a quality school. Those who don't have the means to do so leave bc they can't afford to stay.

This district is a little different from the one originally proposed as it only takes in the unincorporated parts. My house is in Baton Rouge and was in the original SEBR school zone. Under this proposal, it would be left out.

The school district would lose Parkview elementary, one of the better existing schools in what would be the new school district, because it's in the city of Baton Rouge and would not be in the new city.

I think they should push through the chamber's proposal that I saw somebody link on here recently.

Well, South Baton Rouge wouldn't suck as much.

It would be more fun if north Baton Rouge seceded. Its crime rate would be incredible and the city would cease to exist after a few years, for a number of reasons.

I'm all in. You people north of I-10 and west of Highland can eat dicks and fend for yourselves.

Central, Zachary and this area need to go ahead and move to create the 65th Parish of the State. It is allowed. Maybe it is time for someone to try it.
