7008 and 7016 Zimpel Street
Comments: It is rather incredible to ask us to believe that all other alternatives for staging material near the construction site have been properly vetted - and that demolition of 2 historic homes is the only solution. This is a permanent loss of historic property for a temporary staging area. Whether it is Tulane or any other entity, approving FEMA funds for such a blatant misuse is unconscionable - and demonstrates the lack of respect for the historic neighborhood. It tarnishes the process, along with the offending entity, particularly when there are real needs throughout New Orleans.
