Comments: From seeing the photos, I disagree with the proposal to demolish this school building, especially since FEMA has noted its historic designation, based on the school's role in our city's educational history, its design, and other factors. It's unacceptable to me for FEMA and other agencies to propose only a partial preservation of this building, with the school's front section to be demolished, and the auditorium and other sections to be retained.
