City-Parish Talks Tech

Over the past several years, the City-Parish has made tremendous strides in developing and launching exciting digital initiatives, platforms, and technologies being used to improve quality of life for Baton Rouge residents. From the Red Stick 311 mobile app and Open Neighborhood BR platform to our award-winning GIS program and mapping products, we are focused on using technology wherever possible to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and transparency of City-Parish government.

Join us at the Goodwood Main Library Saturday, August 3rd, from 2-5 PM to learn more, watch technology demonstrations, ask questions, and share your thoughts about additional ways we can work together to build a more digital and connected Baton Rouge.
