Comments: Why wasn't the River Gate preserved, we understand it was designed by the same architect? Your ruling is saying that a casino is more important that educating our youth. New Orleans is in dire need of prime educational facilities and Holy Cross School is committed to building a state fo the art facility that encompasses an architectural style that in time would likely become historic. Holy Cross had an opportunity to move into Jefferson Parish but choose to stay in New Orleans and continue its 127 year tradition in Orleans Parish. We ask all the members of the Holy Cross family and friends to join us in expressing their disagreement with FEMA and the State's ruling.
