Robert Lashes Out

A strong proponent of re-using Charity Hospital - and opposing the excess of BioDistrict New Orleans - had this, among many other things, to say as he resigned from a neighborhood group in protest:

"Where are the City Council and the Mayors in all this? The question must be asked. I prefer to think they have been misled by glamorous promises of a new medical center and fail to understand that all those promises can be fulfilled by rehabilitating the Historic Medical Center. It is time for them to defend the City against a rabidly aggressive LSU and the State an d tremember we can have both contemporary development and historic preservation at the same time."

It is clear where the mayor and council stood in late 2007. The mayor and recovery officials promised to raze a neighborhood and were supported in that decision when the council quickly and unanimously imposed a selective building permit ban on a specific section of Lower MidCity eleven months before the VA accepted their only offer.
