Name: Dean Arnett
City: Mandeville
Specific
property
affected:
SFC Church
Comments: The History and culture that Holy Cross has provided the city of New Orleans for nearly two centuries far outweighs the architecture of a building merely 40 years old. Furthermore, the architecture of the church was the same as the Rivergate, which saw its doom to build Harrah's - has Harrah's provided history and culture equivalent to that of Holy Cross. Lastly, even the most staunch parishoners and proponents have to agree that the maintenance of the building was and would continue to be a financial drain on the Archdiocese or on Holy Cross. Please allow the destruction of St Francis Xavier Cabini Church to pave the way for a New Holy Cross and the rebuilding of Gentilly.
