The new footprint for the proposed city of St. George is much smaller than what was proposed in 2013.
While the original attempt for St. George was 85 square miles, the new proposal is for 60 square miles. Organizers posted on their Facebook page Monday that "the decision on what areas to include and not include was based exclusively on the amount of previous support for the effort."
Also, Baton Rouge City Hall chipped away at the size and tax base of St. George during the initial petition campaign by annexing properties including L'Auberge Hotel and Casino and the Mall of Louisiana into city limits.
