property
affected:
Cabrini Church
Comments: Holy Cross is a blessing for this neighborhood. It will be an anchor and a reason to rebuild. The storm destroyed the Cabrini Church and school. There is no reason for it to remain. I do not know what the standard is for "historic", but my opinion is that Cabrini should not meet that standard. More importantly, shoring up the fabric of the neighborhood and the surrounding neighborhoods should trump any attempt to preserve the Cabrini Chuch. Creating a place to educate the future leaders of our town clearly outweighs any marginal historic significance of a building that is/was in disrepair and has outlived its usefulness. I support the Holy Cross project.
