    Shreveport isn't spending anything on the aquarium

    http://heliopolis.la/shreveport-aqua...jon-whitehead/

    The City’s 15-year lease with Planet Aqua Group is $100 a month, and PAG must pay all utilities and operating costs during the lease, with the option to extend it another 15 years. A bit overly generous considering Shreveport, as well as Louisiana, have a horrible track record of cutting these deals under the dog-whistle of “taxes” and “jobs” and are usually left with nothing to show for it (Elio Motors, Millennium Studios, etc.).

    In opposition to other reports, Mr. Whitehead assures that “we [PAG] have a combination of financing, some sponsorship, but there is no city money in our budget. No city money, no state money. All privately funded.” So aside from the $1.5 million in bond money that was set in 2011, PAG is providing the rest of the $2.8 million budget.

    Shreveport doesn't have the tax base nor the people base to support an aquarium.

    What does the tax base have to do with it? If the demand is there and people are willing to pay for it, the free market will provide an opportunity for an acquarium.

    I dont think there is incentive to do so regardless.

    Wait why are we talking about this?
