affected:
Cabrini, 5500 Paris Ave.
Comments: FEMA, your duty is to determine whether going forward with the Holy Cross project will adversely affect Cabrini. Tearing down the building is a pretty dramatic testament to adverse affect. The double talk from both the Archdiocese and Holy Cross is a clear indicator that their idea of mitigation is some pathetic gesture like a photo display or a plaque. That is woefully inadequate and is not acceptable. There are rumors that FEMA has already determined that Holy Cross can proceed with the demolition. If this is true then why does Holy Cross sound so desperate and why are we going through this exercise? Keep Cabrini standing.
