Comments: At this time rebuilding is more imprtant than debating any historical significance. We have an opportunity through Holy Cross to revitalize this area. Without them we are looking at many more years of decay and the building that some are trying to "preserve" will deteriorate even more. Holy Cross went through a long decision making process for site selection that the community was well aware of. This issue should have been debated before they commited to the site not afterwards. It is unfair and unethical to force them to keep this building. Those who are setting up this road block are obstructionist and have no concern for the neighborhood or the city.
