Name: Marie Marcal
City: New Orleans, LA
Specific
property
affected:
1426 N. Roman, New Orleans, LA 70116
Comments: As president of the Esplanade Ridge/Treme Civic Association, I have been working with several neighbors over a period of 4 or 5 years who are willing and able to renovate the property at 1426 N. Roman and do not want to see it demolished. It is unconscionable that a house in our historic neighborhood would be demolished rather than allow people who want to restore it and have the means to do the project acquire the house and proceed with a renovation.

Demolitions in situations like this are the thing that destroys a neighborhood rather than rebuilds it.
