Petition to support development consistent with existing zoning and historic character of the Holy Cross ~Lower 9 Vision Coalition
~Perez APC, a firm with limited experience in developing properties, is attempting to change the zoning of the riverfront property and greenspace that was formerly the site of the Holy Cross School  in the Lower Ninth Ward.  Their end goal:  a height waiver that would allow two seventy-five foot towers and additional clusters of construction that would dwarf the surrounding historic neighborhood, reduce the greenspace and increase the traffic down one way, residential streets. We urge the city of New Orleans to support development that is consistent with the current residential zoning of this site and in keeping with the historic character of the surrounding community.
