||I have carefully considered the plan to reconstruct the property at the St Frances Xavier Cabrini Chruch. My home is within approx . one mile of the site. My family has attended mass there regularly over the past 18 years. For the past 13 years I have been Vice President of the Lake Terrace Propety Owners Association, in that capacity I have had the opportunity to become invloved with our neighborhood's struggle to survive in the post Katrina era. Our community desperately needs ALL of the redevelopment opportunities available to it. This is one of those opportuties that cannot be missed. My occupatation is President of a professional engineering design firm. I'm aware of the value of the design but nothing has come to my attention that is more remarkable than the struggle of the people to regain their community. The design of concrete and steel structures is no substitute for families and community. I fully support the demolition of the structure NOW!!!!! We need to move forward with redevelopment of our community without delay.
