New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell wants her shot at finding a developer for the abandoned Six Flags property in New Orleans East, and the Industrial Development Board has agreed to give her a year to try.Only one disgruntled former bidder shows up near the end of the article this time. (There's at least one in every new episode of this. It's kind of a running trope.) But it doesn't give us an update on Tonya Pope's Edwin Edwards funded wax museum. I'd like to read more about that. Will it exist before a plan for the Six Flags site does?
The board on Tuesday (June 12) voted to enter into a new agreement with Cantrell's administration after the agreement with former Mayor Mitch Landrieu expired on May 31. The agreement essentially allows the city to control the redevelopment process for the 227-acre amusement park that was abandoned after Hurricane Katrina.

But what about the wax museum?
Good news! The Cantrell Administration is not ready to give up on redeveloping the Six Flags site. They just need another year maybe.
