St. Francis Cabrini Church
Comments: It's time for us to look forward and preserve our most valuable resource:our children. Remove the existing church and build a vital link to education that will be a catalyst for this neighborhood. The existing church is not well constructed, and has structural problems. We should not designate a building historic based on the opinions of self appointed preservationists. I would never advocate tearing down truly historic structures, but I don't see how this qualitifies. It's time for a new attitude of progressive thinking. Don't hold up development of what could be the lifeblood of a wonderful neighborhood.
