property
affected:
St. Frances Cabrini Church
Comments: My family and I lived 5 blocks from St France Cabrini for 53 years. My mother taught at Cabrini and I attended school there and St. Joseph Academy. I too have fond memories of both. But the buildings have nothing to do with my memories. I would much rather have the buildings torn down and replaced by Holy Cross High School, and the neighborhood revitalized than leave ugly damaged buildings sitting there for years. Everyone can see that rebuilding is very slow in the Oak Park area and without Holy Cross it will be years before any work will be done on Cabrini. I welcome Holy Cross to tear down the damaged buildings and build new beauty and spark the whole neighborhood into rebuilding.
