Name: Gerald Raynal Jr
City: Belle Chasse, la
5500 Paris Ave. New Orleans La
Comments: In efforts to rebuild, revitalize, and spur growth within New Orleans, I say remove the structures at 5500 Paris Ave. and allow Holy Cross School to move forward with the proposed construction. A school with several hundred students living in and commuting through this neighborhood will greatly impact the surrounding communities. Continued delays will only leave the New Orleans area with another significant loss, Holy Cross School. The prolonged uncertainty has surely impacted the schools enrollment and its ability to provide these boys and young men with the education and school experiences the administration surely strives for. New Orleans can ill afford the denial of this application. The product being blighted buildings on the site, the possible loss of a 150+ year educational institution, and years of sporadic recovery within the community.
