St. Frances Cabrini Church
Comments: I am a structural engineer and a native of Gentilly. My firm, and myself have worked with Mr. Curtis and Mr. Davis on many of their projects and have the utmost repspect and admiration for thier architectural abitlities and achievements. I believe that their legacies and fame will endure long past this building. I believe that the best interests of the city and the community will be served by allowing demolition of the building and construction of the finest campus possible for Holy Cross. I beleive that declaring this structre to be historically significant while hindering the rebuilding of this neighborhood and community is wrong.
