Ralph Lupin, chairman of the Vieux Carre Commission, has opposed allowing the panels, which he said would compromise the building's historic integrity and could set a precedent for the entire neighborhood.
Ever since the development of new technologies such as central heating and air conditioning, preservationists have wrestled with the question of how to incorporate them into historic buildings. Many agree that such efforts should be considered on a case-by-case basis. Once past that, there are varying levels of support.
Lupin, for his part, took a firm stand Thursday. "If you damage the integrity of the French Quarter by this intrusion into what was built there several hundred years ago," he warned the council, "you are asking for heartache."
...
Lupin said the additional conditions imposed by Palmer didn't make him feel any better about the proposal, saying that any work that would jeopardize the integrity of the neighborhood could prove costly for a city whose economy depends in large part on tourism spurred by the Quarter's unique character.
"I am extremely sensitive to what the French Quarter represents to this community," Lupin said.
...
While council members were quick to say that their decision should not be taken as a precedent for other requests for solar panels in the Quarter, Lupin was not mollified.
"I'm just concerned that whenever we see a movement that a lot of people would consider to be a movement forward, that at times in a very, very important historic district, if you aren't careful, that movement forward can ruin the district," he said after the meeting.

Ralph Lupin, the chairman of the nine-member board, said he believed it would compromise the historic integrity of the building, and set a precedent for the neighborhood, opening the door for clusters of solar panels to start sprouting up throughout the French Quarter, according to a preliminary draft of the meeting minutes.

"This type of disrespectful name-calling has ...

"This type of disrespectful name-calling has no place in government," Nagin said in a letter this week to Lupin.
...
During a commission meeting last week, Lupin was among several members criticizing Sanitation Director Veronica White's insistence that French Quarter residents must begin putting out their trash in wheeled plastic bins that are designed to be lifted by mechanized arms on new garbage trucks.
...
"I don't understand Ms. White's obstinance other than that she's a bitch," Lupin said.
...
Lupin, a former member of the Human Relations Commission, has not apologized for his comment but has denied that it was either sexist or racist.Lupin is white; White is African-American.
...
Nagin, who has strongly backed White on the issue of requiring use of the trash bins citywide, including in the Quarter, cannot simply fire Lupin as either a member or the chairman of the Vieux Carre Commission.
...
Nagin said Lupin has "the right as a person to express disagreement with policies of city government.
...
Lupin said Tuesday he regrets that the controversy over his comment has deflected attention away from the issue of the garbage bins.
Lupin's comment about White drew exclamations of surprise and dismay from other commission members during last week's meeting, but no one called on him to withdraw it.The other members appeared all to side with him on the issue of the garbage bins.
Lupin defended himself Tuesday against allegations that he is a sexist or a racist.
"I'm a gynecologist," Lupin said."You can't be a sexist if you're a gynecologist."
Further, he said, "to accuse me, given my history, of being a racist just angers me." During his 45 years as a doctor, he said, he has insisted on treating black and white patients equally, even when that was not common practice, and today most of his patients are black, including many who are unable to pay for his services.
Lupin, who is also a lawyer and a brigadier general in the Louisiana National Guard, said he spent several days in the Superdome after Hurricane Katrina helping to provide medical care to New Orleanians, most of them poor and black, who had taken shelter there.
Lupin, whose term on the Vieux Carre Commission has expired but who has continued to serve because no successor has been nominated and confirmed by the City Council, said he does not intend to resign and will remain an active member until a successor is chosen.
The commission chooses its own chairman, and the other members could decide to replace Lupin in that role even if he remains a member.He has been the chairman since late 2001 and has a history of making blunt, forceful comments, particularly about people he thought were trying to damage historic buildings or to violate the commission's rules.
Lupin said he attended a meeting Tuesday of the commission's Architectural Committee and read a statement about his position.He said he would release a copy of it, but it had not arrived several hours later.
