Save St. Saviour's!

We agree that as an architecturally, historically, environmentally and culturally significant site, St. Saviour's Church complex should be preserved and developed into a city park and museum. The church buildings are the work of a master architect. The land is tied to generations of indigenous people and immigrant settlers. The forested tract upon the property is rare in this heavily industrialized area and host to many birds and animals. Creating a cutural center here, on a site that was continually used by the community for 159 years, would improve the quality of life of area residents.
We respectfully ask that you allocate city funds toward purchase and restoration of the property, which has been put up for sale, or use eminent domain in order to save it, as was done for other historic sites in the past.
