  1. I completely oppose the demolition of
    3142 State Dr
    7711 Benjamin St
    1504 Pine St
    2411 St. Philip St

    Buildings in far worse condition has been properly renovated and restored. Destroying historic buildings and buildings of fine architectural styles merely to allow new, cheaply built over-priced buildings makes NO SENSE. Unless you think that New Orleans should be more filled with short-term rentals than it is now.

    Stop destroying our historic building stock!

  2. The demolition of the two on Pine Street and State Drive would be a crime. If a building is architecturally and/or historically insignificant or beyond hope, demolition is acceptable.

  3. I completely oppose the demolition of 1504 Pine Street. This is a fine building that contributes to the ambiance of the neighborhood. I find it inconceivable that the property owner wishes to destroy this building and, with it, a valuable irreplaceable piece of my neighborhood.
