property
affected:
St. Frances Cabrini Church, 5500 Paris Ave., New Orleans, LA 70122
Comments: Please do not destroy what could finally be the beginning of an extraordinary rebirth of this community. Please allow for the removal of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Church so that Holy Cross can move onto the property and become the impetus. not only for the community's regrowth, but for its very survival. Who will be held accountable if, should this opportunity be denied, the community and Holy Cross never recover? Surely, it could not have been the legislative intent, in the passage of the National Historic Preservation Act, Section 106, to mandate the preservation of a single, questionably historic building at the expense of the preservation of an entire community!
