Name: Yusef Freeman
City: not provided
Thomy Lafon Elementary School
Comments: Demolition of the Thomy Lafon buildings is crucial. 460 new residences are currently under construction around the Thomy Lafon site. As there are no public or private resources available to rehab the school and RSD will not open a school on the site, demolition is the solution to avoid the presence of a dangerous vacant Thomy Lafon sitting in the middle of a large new community that housing over 1,000 children.
