Of course the nimby's are looking to derail it.

Long overdue. Hopefully the NIMBY’s realize Tulane is spending all the money to upgrade that dump.

Another great example of “NOLA built” and “504”.
Tulane is the University of Louisiana

Yeah need to focus on Tulane and let "NOLA" and the "504" jump on board whenever they're truly ready.

After the school builds their own facility on campus, they should turn around and rent it out to the public for $12/hr. Brand new courts at a cheaper price? They'll drain Audubon Park of that revenue and they'll have to shut down the facility completely. After they shut it down, you turn around and no longer offer public access.

Not to get into the sordid details, but Tulane was smart to walk away from this "deal".

And I believe the release said "university-owned property", not specifically "on campus".

I agree.... walking away was the best move..... sumbody grew "a pair"...the "Courts" will be located on the roof of the "IPF"
