Name: David
City: New Orleans
Thomy Lafon
Comments: Please expedite the demolition of Thomy Lafon. This building will not be reopened as a school according to the master plan and is not well-equipped to serve any other purpose. A brand new school will be built at the Woodson site. A vacant building is a safety and blight concern for families moving to the neighborhood. The school districts will be liable for the buildings and their maintenance, when monies could be better spent on students.
