NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

A plan to redevelop The Fly on the Mississippi River behind Audubon Zoo has some neighbors upset.

The Carrollton Boosters say they've been working with the Audubon Institute to create a state-of-the-art sports complex next to the current Riverview baseball fields. But some people say they want to keep the green space available for all residents to enjoy. They've even started a petition on Change.org. You can see that petition here.

Councilwoman Latoya Cantrell's office says they expect an update from the Carrollton Boosters on the project during the next Community Development Committee meeting on Wednesday at 2 p.m. in City Council Chambers.
