After reading the assessment of the property it is apparent(as ususal) to "follow the money" and you'll find the motive. With all of the vacant lots owned by the church (and otherwise) in the area you would think that there would be plenty of space for affordable housing AND the church. The Diocese claims that there are not enough people going to the church. It would seem to me that if you are creating a neighborhood that you would also be creating parishoners. Isn't that what happened when we all lived there? I see that the Blessed Mother is gone and that there is scafolding up. Exactly what IS the latest. Is there any action that can still be taken?
