Thomy Lafon Elementary School, 2601 Seventh Street, NOLA
Comments: I am in complete support of demolishing the existing Lafon school site. It makes no sense to retain the site in its current (damaged) condition and renovating the buildings, especially since the master plan does not include reopening the school. Within the next year or so, there will be a newly rebuilt housing development surrounding the existing damaged school, as well as new streets and a new elementary school nearby that will serve the community. Now is the time for demolition of Lafon to begin.
