affected:
5500 Paris Ave. New Orleans, La. 70122
Comments: I see no significant historic value to a church that is younger than Iam.Additionally the neighborhood is many, many years away from regaining the pre-Katrina population and therefore the church is many, many years away regaining its pre-Katrina parishioners. It is extremely important to have the Holy Cross development located at this site to re-develop the Gentilly-Lakefront neighborhoods.In this instance, education should be selected over preservation. I support the Holy Cross proposal for this site.
