captureThe New Orleans City Council has dropped plans to create an interim zoning district, or IZD.

The IZD would have made it harder for Tulane to build their 30,000-seat on-campus stadium.

Some Uptown neighbors who supported the creation of the IZD felt it was their only way to have some say in the construction project.

Tulane has hosted meetings to answer questions about their concerns.

The university says more will be planned in the future.
