Oak Park Neighborhood
Comments: If FEMA does not very quickly approve the demolition of Cabrini Church, then it is working to prevent to reconstruction of our neighborhood. It makes no sense to preserve a church which was an economic drain even before the hurricane, had a frequently leaking roof, and cannot possibly be made into a functioning church again in the forseeable future instead of approving the beautifully designed, architecturally significant plan for Holy Cross, which has to involve the demolition of this church. FEMA, please work for restoration of New Orleans and listen to the overwhelming majority of the people who are back in or want to come back to Gentilly. Let Holy Cross begin the demolition of this church this month. We were promised a decision would be made at the end of Dec. It is already Feb.!
