Land issues for Alive project

Mayor Kip Holden says he's not concerned about ownership issues for land where the proposed "Alive" project will be built. There have been years of legal battles to determine if the riverside property belongs to the state or a railroad company.

"Alive" is a tourist attraction project involving educational and entertainment features that is part of a $900 million dollar tax proposal East Baton Rouge Parish voters will see on the November ballot.

Some people downtown today say they would like to see the ownership issue resolved before it goes to the voters. Mayor Holden says the rail company and the state should be able to reach an agreement to help the city. 

Voters rejected a similar tax plan last year.
