According to a report from the Mid-City Messenger, the P.G.T. Beauregard monument could get a new home and could be moved to Greenwood Cemetery, in Lakeview.  

The monument sat at the entrance to City Park on Bayou St. John for a century before being taken down May 17, despite objections from the Monumental Task Committee, which launched a long-shot legal battle in an effort to save the Beauregard statue just before its removal.
There has been no comment from City Hall.
