Name: Avram Penner
City: New Orleans, LA
Comments: I am support of the complete demolition of the Lafon school site. With the new Harmony Oaks development going up around it, I'm afraid that the site will remain vacant for years to come as any redevelopment plans fail to get funded or simply held up limbo. Over the years there have been several additions added that impact the overall architectural significance of the site. If the site is not demolished in a timely fashion I'm afraid that it will have a negative impact on a community that is trying to rebound from years of economic distress. Please demolish the Lafon site and let's move on with the redevelopment and renewal of the greater central city neighborhood.
