NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

People tasked with settling a plan to overhaul the old Six Flags site in New Orleans East call only one offer to buy the land good.

According to our partners at Nola.com|The Times Picayune, the Industrial Development Board got three offers Feb. 14 to buy the site. The board's attorney says a $3.26 million bid from a group proposing the return of a Jazzland amusement park is legitimate. 

An offer of $4.55 million came from a developer pitching an amusement park and "city within a city." A $5.5 million dollar offer came from a developer who did not disclose details of plans for the site.

The board plans to review offers over the next month and make a final recommendation at its March meeting.
