Signed by Preservation Resource Center Board President Julie Habetz and Executive Director Patty Gay, the letter takes a firm stance against the proposed development, which is four times higher than the legal limit for the French Quarter.
The letter, which will be delivered to the New Orleans City Council, ends with a very clear imperative: âPlease do NOT approve the construction of this structure.â
In conjunction with Vieux CarrÃ© Property Owners, Residents, and Associates and French Quarter Citizens, this letter and the signatures collected represent a strong signal to the council that the PRC, VCPORA, FQC, and lovers of the historic French Quarter everywhere stand in opposition to the high-rise at 121 Royal.
The Council will vote on the matter on Thursday, November 5.
We hope the council will abide by the wishes of these concerned citizens.
