where will all the buildings go?

What landfill is going to accommodate all this rubble?

Lafitte, CJ Peete, BW Cooper and St. Bernard Housing Projects
47 Public School Buildings
1000s of houses on demolition lists
State Office Building and State Supreme Court Building

We need to demand greater accountability from Concordia and CSRS (planners for the RSD) to promote renovation and adaptive reuse.
