Comments: During the meeting tonight a question ws asked about naming a building historic after it was destroyed by a disaster. The gentleman went on to say that many buildings are named historic after being destroyed citing the move to make historic the site of the Twin Towers in NY. I can understand how the site of the Twin Towers can be named as historic since there loss was a huge event in the history of the United States. The building at 5500 Paris Ave should not even be mentioned in the same breath as the Twin Topwers. The gentleman also went on to say that there are facilites that are less then 50 years old that are considered historic citing the launch pad at NASA. Also a facility that has great significance in the history of the United States and also should not be mentioned in the same breath as 5500 Paris. True historic sites stand the test of time and functionality neither of which can be said about 5500 Paris Ave.
Please remove the building and let Holy Cross do some or all of the things they are planning to mitigate the loss of this facility for the parishiners that truely care about their church building
