Name: Preservationist and former parishoner
City: New Orleans, LA
Specific
property
affected:
St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Church, 5500 Paris Ave., New Orleans, LA
Comments: As a preservationist and former parishoner, it's this simple: In this case,
IF YOU SAVE THE CHURCH BUILDING, YOU KILL THE NEIGHBORHOOD!!!

PLEASE STOP HOLDING THIS NEIGHBORHOOD AND SCHOOL HOSTAGE AND LET THESE PEOPLE GET ON WITH THEIR LIVES!!!

Even if there were time and money to preserve the church building, it would not help the neighborhood and surrounding area as much as having Holy Cross move in. Sacrifice the BUILDING for the greater good of the neighborhood and PEOPLE. What's more important?
