The Paidia Company - Only Proposal Submitted to City by Deadline
March 5, 2014
The most recent New Orleans City/IDB RFP for the redevelopment of the former Six Flags/Jazzland site had a due date of February 28, 2014. Through our subsidiary, TPC-NOLA, Inc., we had the only proposal submitted to the City/IDB by this deadline. However, this does not mean that we have won. Not yet anyway. The City/IDB structured the RFP so that they could continue to accept proposals after the deadline, but would give preference to those turned in timely. We believe our proposal is strong and viable. We propose to re-open the New Orleans park as a true celebration of Louisiana. Jazzland would be joined by the Backlot Studios production facility. Future phases would include Baritone Beach Waterpark and the Backlot Shoppes mixed-use venue. The full proposal can be read HERE. Help spread the word to BRING JAZZLAND BACK!
The Jazzland Proposal
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.
This proposal for Jazzland includes locally owned businesses and is working with area youth organizations to offer internship programs and art & music education programs at the park.
Why Save Jazzland?
Families of New Orleans would like to be able to bring their children to the park again. The City is trying to attract more tourist by showing them that there is more to the City than Bourbon Street. Jazzland is a perfect fit to add to that campaign and to attract more families to visit.
The infrastructure is already there for it to be a THEME PARK. Historically, the park attracted over 800,000 guests annually while operating seasonally and competing with Astroworld. Today, the closest regional park is over 450 miles away and we plan to operate year-round.
