Name: Elizabeth "Betty" Burgess
City: formerly of Gentilly - now in Metairie, Louisiana
St. Francis Cabrini Church on Paris Avenue
Comments: I, for the life of me, cannot understand why FEMA is finding the St. Francis Xavier Church building an historic building other than they don't want to spend the money to demolish the building so Holy Cross can not only build on that land but also revitalize the area. The building is ugly and has always been ugly. Please abide by what the Archdiocese wants to do and demolish the building. Why not give Holy Cross the full use of the land they have purchased so the neighborhood can be whole once again.
