The human resources listed  here are of people and agencies focused on economic development, global trade, and the future of New Orleans.

These people will all be included in the exploration of the merits of uniquely developing  the area in and around the coordinates for the 30/90 in East Orleans. 

The 30/90 and the Port Authority of New Orleans

In very preliminary meetings with the Port Authority's Business Development leaders, it became clear that the port owns the land of the exact intersection and that they have not had any proposals for the development of that area based on the coordinates.  That meeting took place in September 2011.
