I would create an industry that we could be the leaders in and pay high salaries. They rest of the good things would then happen naturally. #capitalism

Buy the town and kick every single other person out of it.

I’d buy up downtown Baton Rouge, clear out the shite areas, and build a high end hub right along the Mississippi River. A lot of untapped potential down there.

More farmland. Less pop up neighborhoods. We gotta try to keep the country country.

In actuality right now. I’d lean on honor chode to open us back up.

Buy all land around it, put a toll of $25 and keep riffraff out

You could clean up the area between Austin College and downtown

re: If you had Bezos like money — what would you do to spruce up your hometown?
I travel for a living and when power all was above $500mm and saw the billboards everywhere, I really thought about it a lot as far as what I could do to fix our lower income areas.


My town isn’t as corrupt or racially divided as BR or NOLA but we also have primarily conservative leadership. I’m sure that would change if it flipped. We do have an “other side of the tracks” for sure but it’s a one high school town of 70kish so everybody goes to school together. I feel like it’s a pretty cohesive town despite high poverty in some areas.

My honest answer would be to go and build some sort of manufacturing company in the lower income part of town that I could break even on each year and then build out some daycare, transportation, and mid-level apartments/duplexes tied to employment in hope that people can get out of slums and hope to move upward to.

Don’t care about profiting off of it but the best way out of poverty is a job not handouts.

My hometown can go to hell for all I care. It doesn’t deserve my money and they’ll blow it on dumb bull shite.

Now as for Oxford, build a brewery and a beer garden. The town is pretty much perfect but lacks those two things and I’d make cash as well with it.

Good answer.
If I really had that kind of money I would think to put some large industry or job creating business in NBR, but as another poster said it would somehow be misconstrued as racist. So probably not worth it. But in reality that is the only way to better the area is to really affect the worst areas first.

I’m from ascension parish, but I’d buy up all the property along hwy 64 in north Baton Rouge. Maybe, 6 miles wide and about 25 miles along 64. I’d lay the civil foundation for 6 lane roads every mile parallel to 64 and grid out every mile perpendicular so you have a N-S E-W roads every mile. Lay all the gas lines, electricity, lights that are sensors instead of timed, piping and drainage.

An actual planned and functional suburb of Baton Rouge instead of the shitshow that is AP. I’d like to see a massive exodus out of BR and see the local government die and rebuild.

You'd end up giving a huge chunk of that money to corrupt politicians.

Lafayette

Bury utilities on Johnston street, make it a boulevard, and regulate signage.

If I lived there I might. It pales in comparison to Tallulah though.

If I have 100b+ I honestly DGAF about being called racist.

Hell if I have $100m I don’t care about being called a racist.

Best thing I can ever do for the downtrodden is point them to Jesus. Second best thing I can do is convince them not to have sex (or babies for or non religious) outside of marriage (or a committed relationship... again for our non religious) and maintain a steady job.

I don’t think there’s anything I can do with Jeff Bezos money to stop people from banging and having kids out of wedlock, but jobs and upward economic growth I can help with.
