affected:
7008 Zimple, 7016 Zimple, New Orleans, La
Comments: The rationale for demolition is to allow for construction equipment on the site - but with no concrete plans offered for future development.
If buildings of historic value are allowed to be demolished when they are not blighted or in danger of collapse - the future for preservation looks pretty dim.
I certainly oppose this request.
