New Jazz District Plans

May 30, 2006 by

Stock Market News and Investment Information | NEW ORLEANS, May 30 (Reuters) – New Orleans plans a new $700 million jazz district and central park, aiming to use the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina as an opportunity to rebuild the damaged core of the city.

A very nice sounding plan, but it does raise a few questions. Namely would it really end up being a predominantly educational complex or would it become the theme park version of New Orleans that we all fear will be forced down our throats by the developers? Conceptually sound, but in need of watchdogging.
