Baton Rouge Communities: Spanish Town

One
of the most interesting and historically vibrant of Baton Rouge communities is
Spanish Town. Spanish Town is located on downtown Baton Rouge
real estate, in the Downtown Development District. Directly to the north of
Spanish Town is the state capital complex. One of the highlights of this area is
the Spanish Town Mardi
Gras parade
, which is one of the biggest festivals in Baton Rouge.

Because Spanish Town is
receiving a great deal of renovation (tearing down historical homes in Spanish
Town Baton Rouge is frowned upon), and because the downtown district is such a
desirable location, home values in Spanish Town can be quite high. However, as
you move east in Spanish Town Baton Rouge, the real estate becomes less
expensive. This eastern section is moving past the I-110 overpass — the only
part of the neighborhood where great Baton Rouge real estate
deals can still be found.

Hillary Clinton Promises More Federal Aid to the Gulf Coast if Elected

On
Saturday, at the
National Conference of Black
Mayors
in
Baton Rouge, presidential hopeful
Hillary Clinton criticized the
incompetence that she feels marked the Bush Administration response to Hurricane
Katrina.
The Shreveport Times reports on Clinton’s visit to Baton
Rouge
:

Speaking to the
National Conference of Black Mayors, Clinton, D-N.Y., said she was angered when
she saw images of New Orleans residents on their rooftops, begging to be rescued
from the floodwaters that followed the August 2005 hurricane. She said President
Bush’s response, 20 months later, was a display of
“incompetence.”

Baton Rouge is home to
many
refugees from Hurricane Katrina, and Baton Rouge real estate has seen an increase in
value since the Gulf Coast was hit by the storm in 2005.

Hurricane Katrina Victims in Emergency Housing Have New Move Out Date

The latest from FEMA regarding the move out date for hurricane victims has been
pushed back again, but this time FEMA says that this new date is probably firm.
The new date, which mostly affects victims of Hurricane Katrina, is March 1,
2009. That gives many hurricane evacuees almost two years to get their lives
back in order and move out of FEMA housing.

You can watch the story here, from WBRZ News 2.

Baton Rouge
real estate has been experiencing an increase of families moving into the area
since Hurricane Katrina, making it a more desirable location. While the main rush for Baton Rouge real estate was a year and a half ago, in
September 2005, Baton Rouge still remains a good location for many families from
around the country.
