September 21, 2011 Ms. Nicole Hobson-Morris Executive Director Louisiana State Office of Historic Preservation 1051 North Third Street Baton Rouge, LA 70802 Dear Ms. Hobson-Morris, I was chased out of my hometown, New Orleans, on August 30th 2005 and have never been able to return. I support the nomination of these two levee breach sites, (17th Street Canal and the east side north breach of the Industrial Canal) for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. Such a nomination would identify these two sites as the areas of historical events which have had an impact on the city of New Orleans and its people, and how the federal government is now dealing with existing levees throughout the nation. The listing of these two levee breach sites in the National Register are important to the community of New Orleans as sites of historic events because they are important to the people of this community in helping them remember their history. The listing of these two levee breach sites will assist federal agencies in the future through the identification of National Register properties for future Section 106 activities. That is, this listing will save federal agencies, or agencies using federal funds, licenses or permits to complete their environmental review quicker and thereby save public funds. To the person or agency to whom the letter of support is directed: if there are questions regarding this letter you are welcome to contact me. Sincerely, Johni Prinz
