The taxpayers have already spent over $1M on West End consultant studies. Most of the previous spend was Jefferson Parish politically connected developers. JP is owned and controlled by commercial developers. At every meeting a list of donors is published on who paid what to who.
This latest $$$K spend is MYHMC slip rent money. HR&A is a really high end NYC firm that invests $B public projects. If you love Savern? You will love the new West End coming soon.
