BATON ROUGE, Louisiana — The first component of the Water Campus, a 33-acre center for coastal education and research between downtown and LSU, has been approved by the East Baton Rouge City-Parish Planning Commission.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1uyJC5G ) commissioners also approved Monday a rezoning request from the Tipitina's Foundation to turn two buildings into office/classroom space, audio and video recording studios, digital media editing suites and rehearsal rooms for local musicians.

Commissioners approved plans to rezone a 2-acre section to allow the construction of a four-story, 65,000-square-foot Water Campus building. The building will be the headquarters for the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority. The CPRA is a state agency that is responsible for coastal restoration and protection projects and planning in Louisiana.
