A speech by John Davies before the Baton Rouge Rotary Club on December 9, 2015. Davies is the president and CEO of the Baton Rouge Area Foundation (BRAF). He discusses: BRAF’s mission; the status of their current projects, including the restoration center for the mentally ill, the “Arts Block” in downtown Baton Rouge, and the construction of the Water Campus; their research into “new mobility” options for alleviating traffic congestion, including gondolas, bike share, and car share; an update on the funding for the tram between the LSU campus and the State Capitol; and an update on the proposed train between Baton Rouge and New Orleans.
