BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport Commission has authorized appropriating up to $200,000 toward the cost of a strategic plan for the airport's future growth and development.
Commission Chairman Jim Ellis tells The Advocate airport officials are seeking additional funds from the Baton Rouge Area Chamber and state economic development and transportation agencies for a planning study that could cost $400,000 to $600,000, depending on the scope.
Ellis said Tuesday the objective is to develop strategies that will lead to more and better service at lower cost for travelers flying into and out of Metro Airport.
