Update: Mayor Kip Holden said the city will negotiate who owns the land where the proposed Alive Project would be built after the vote on the bond proposal in November.

Holden announced at news briefing today that he believes this to be a "non-issue. Questions surfaced recently as to who controlled the land where the proposed Alive Project would be built - the railroad or the state.   The $900 million bond proposal includes $225 million for the Alive Project.   Advisor to the Mayor, Walter Monsour, says if the Alive Project isn't built, then there would be no bonds for it.

Holden said this issue should not affect the voters' decision.
