BATON ROUGE- A company from East Baton Rouge Parish was told it needed to show proof of financing before city leaders in New Orleans would take seriously a proposal to renovate the shuttered Six Flags compounded east of downtown.

The amusement park, originally opened as Jazzland, was closed after it flooded during Hurricane Katrina.

The company from the Capital City wants to return the name to the park in a proposal it submitted recently. While leaders were skeptical, designers said the plans are not a pipe dream.

Another company also submitted plans and was told it needed stronger financial background, too.

Both companies can resubmit their proposals with the specific information.
