Name: Jane Katner
City: New Orleans, LA

property
affected:
5500 Paris Ave
Comments: It's a sad state when a 47 year old structure (too inefficient in design and size to be affordable to maintain and upkeep) takes precedence over the lives of homeowners wrecked by Katrina. I personally hold Friends of Cabrini, Verderber, and David Villarubia responsible for affecting my life and my future plans. If only they had experienced the devastation of 8.5 feet of water in their own homes for three and a half weeks. We returned to this city after 7 months in exile to rebuild our home and rebuild our neighborhood only to have our lives put on hold by these people. And now we can no longer afford to wait for our neighborhood to return and we own a plot of land in a devastated neighborhood simply because few with NO invested interest in our neighborhood find a BUILDING more important than PEOPLE.
