5500 Paris Ave. New Orleans, LA
Comments: The neighborhood and HOLY CROSS need this site without the church. The church was difficult to maintain. Asking a school to maintain this church is unreasonable since it was difficult for a functioning parish to do so. I do have a personal stake in this decision, since my son is a 9th grader at HC and I would love to see him graduate from a new school.
However, I travel throughout the city for my work and have also seen first hand, from my own flooded property near Jesuit HS, that a HS is an anchor for a neighborhood that rec'd 7-8 feet of floodwater. Gentilly needs and deserves this opportunity for their comeback.
