National Trust for Historic Preservation joins Louisiana Landmarks Society in Support of Holy Cross Neighborhood Association

Wednesday, May 7, 2014

The National Trust has released a statement to the City Council urging councilmembers to oppose the proposed zoning change which would allow buildings as high as 60 feet is a historic neighborhood of single story houses. Louisiana Landmarks Society issued its own letter to the Council supporting the neighborhood’s position that the proposed development at the former Holy Cross School is out of scale and out of character with this historic district and that it will set a dangerous precedent. The City Council takes up this matter Thursday, May 7. Zoning matters generally begin at 11:00 am.
