Sexton Cottages
Comments: To demolish these historic cottages is a complete disregard to the very premise of the 106 Review process. The buildings are part of our cultural heritage and history. FEMA's obligation to the people of the country they serve is to protect our heritage. The cost associated with the review process and required mitigation for demolishing historic buildings would cancel out any notion that to demolish these cottages is a more cost effective solution. Cost should not be an issue. To repair and restore is the proper and right course of action. Anything less is a travesty and misappropriation of our federal dollars!
