Preserve This

National Trust for Historic Preservation President Richard Moe asks Mayor Nagin not to adopt the provision in the BNOB proposal for a moritorium on new building permits in devastated areas.


Preventing homeowners from taking those steps necessary to make their homes habitable would, in my view, deal a very serious blow to the recovery momentum which is now beginning to build all over the city.

The entire letter to the mayor can be read here.

This is the first time I've been to your site and see that you're an architect. One of my best friends just majored on architecture from UL-Lafayette last Fall and is now working for a firm in Houston and enjoys it.

I see you've already had me on your list for some time. I'll do the same.
