It's development limbo concerning eight acres of green space in Metairie that was once part of a spiritual retreat run by Cenacle nuns. The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans bought the property for $6 million with development in mind for this chunk of land, which led to some neighborhood opposition, of course. Today "is the deadline set by the archdiocese for Metairie Sanctuary on the Lake Inc., a group of residents and activists...to come up with $3.3 million to buy the property." [NOLA.com]
