property
affected:
Cabrini Church
Comments: The government has enough battles to fight in this area- why get involved and delay a deal that was well publicized. This will do nothing but help this part of the city. The parties involved went through the proper channels. It is just a hand full of people who want to stop this project. Most of these people are not part of any of the entities involved. They found a loop hole and are making a point. There are other churches that are not opened at least this land will be used functionally and not be a blighted property. It will educate boys. If anyone knows tradition Holy Cross does. So a 43 year old church does not compare in tradition. Tearing down the church is a win - win situation. Where as delaying this is a lose - lose. Holy Cross cannot wait any longer. The process to get here has been long enough. Tear down the church and let us build. We will start a new tradition that will last much longer than 43 years.
