Name: Keith Haggerty
City: Orlando, FL
Specific
property
affected:
5500 Paris Ave.
Comments: In a city that measures history in centuries rather than decades, why is FEMA crippling a community for a dilapidated church with little (if any) historical significance? If the Gentilly area in question is going to survive, it needs an infusion of strong minded, hard working, passionate people who will not only look to restore a neighborhood but revitalize a community for generations. The 125 year legacy of the Holy Cross Family should be welcomed as a savior to this community, not forced out because of the voices of misguided preservationist. Hopefully, wisdom will prevail and the HC tradition of molding and educating Christian men will continue on Paris Avenue.
