Name: Michele Vignes
City: New Orleans, LA
Specific
property
affected:
5500 Paris Avenue
Comments: This is one of the most ridiculous post Katrina scenerios in New Orleans. The church is meaningless without the community to support it. The school will bring the community back. The school cannot continue to retain and attrack students in this state of limbo. This 125+ year old institution will die if this is not resolved now. What is more important, an asbestos ridden structure with no life or a viable much needed educational institution for young men?

Where were the preservationist months ago when this site was under consideration? It was public knowledge for many months before the remediation of the site was begun that this location was under consideration. I am a nearby resident and I can assure you that the school is a much needed and welcome addition.
