||Many residents of my community are waiting on the outcome of this decision prior to rebuilding. We need Holy Cross, we want Holy Cross to come to our community. The church was costly to maintain and never really fit in to the arthitecture of the community. We have all been faced with difficult decisions since Katrina. The church needs to be demolished so that we, as a community can move forward and breathe new life into our area. It is essential to our recovery that this large parcel of land be developed and not sit abandoned. Please allow Holy Cross to demolish this building and proceed with the beautiful campus they have planned.
