5/4/2011 I love it! it's simple and clean. And matches the aesthetic of St. Cecilia's across the street. I just hope it's going to become a reality soon because kids of the 9th ward are suffering.

My initial impression based on the single slide and a woeful lack of additional detail is …major FAIL. The "design" is a generic brick and glass rectangle with NO soul or hint aesthetic influence. I can't believe someone was actually paid t...     read more

I am very concerned that the new NORD centers have a wooden stage that will accommodate dance lessons and theatrical presentations.

I am writing regarding the proposed Stallings Center on Poland and Rampart. Although the exterior drawing of the proposed center looks very nice, the email includes no explanation to the specific function of the center and where the funds will c...     read more

We are incredibly excited about Stallings coming back to life. Our family will definitely make use of it, especially the pool. (Do we know if the repaired version will still be topped with a chain link fence?)

My only question/comment i...     read more

5/4/2011 I like the design of the attractive, new Stallings Center, especially the glass. I approve of the bricks' red color. I think a yellow brick would have been unattractive.

5/4/2011 Our comments related to Stallings are in enthusiastic support of the center's quick construction and re-opening. The current design and drawings look terrific.

5/4/2011 Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Stallings design. It looks good. I have some questions.
1) Will it be raised enough to prevent flooding in the future?

5/4/2011 After seeing the full pdf file of the plans, I withdraw most of my questions as to landscaping etc.
However, I still have questions.... there was only an interior of the first floor - what is the second floor or is it just open space?
Compari...     read more

5/4/2011 It is difficult to comment on a tiny drawing, with no indication of what the space inside will be used for.
However, it is ugly, jail-like, and the design looks mid-century modern.
It has no relevance whatsoever to our neighborhood, and resem...     read more

5/4/2011 The building is very boxy and unappealing. While the intent may be to re-create an old brick warehouse, of which there are few in Bywater, this comes off like an institution that lacks adequate openings to allow natural light so there is a sense of o...     read more Name redacted at request of author
