A developer wants to build a six story condominium complex in Spanish Town, but residents say it will take away from the historic look of the neighborhood. The Historical Preservation Commission has been working to put in restrictions to make sure it stays an historical area. The developer is meeting with the Planning and Zoning Commission on June 22 to get those laws changed. The meeting is at the Baton Rouge Metro Council Chambers at 5pm.
