Representatives from the Baton Rouge Area Foundation may secure funding from the State Bond Commission on Sept. 17 for the Baton Rouge Lakes Master Plan. The financial assistance will allow the next phase of the project — dredging large sections of the lakes — to begin.

BRAF project manager Lauren Crapanzano Jumonville said BRAF hopes to obtain $3 million in Priority 2-allocated funds to pursue construction for the project.
