The City of New Orleans issued an RFP for redevelopment proposals for the former Jazzland/Six Flags property. The deadline for those proposals was October 31, 2011. The Paidia Company submitted a proposal to re-open the park as a true celebration of Louisiana by connecting the dots of community, history, identity, and artistry in a living testimonial to our spirit and pride. Additionally, we propose to add a water park and movie back lot to the site.
The mayor's office prefers a proposal to replace the park with an outlet mall that would require TIF financing. We believe that idea is better suited for raw land nearby or at the plaza site as it really doesn't benefit from the existing infrastructure.
While we are not the one and only proposal currently being considered by the city, we hope to change that by becoming the People's Choice. Be sure to Like us on facebook if you like our plans, and follow us on twitter @jazzlandpark, and believe as we do that our plans would benefit the community the most. Also be sure to sign our petition!
