Please stop selling out our once beautiful downtown — giving up old architecture, charm and character to dollars. The horrendously ugly and mundane hotel now being built across from the Fine Arts Theater on Builtmore Avenue is a perfect example. It looks like a prison to some of us — how could you allow this? Where is respect and appreciation for history, style and integrity?
One BB&T building in town is enough, isn't it? Let's not even mention the industrial-style monstrosity recently placed near City/County Plaza for administration of the park there. Who is approving these designs? Leave St. Lawrence alone! You are clearly not equipped to make wise decisions in these matters.
