To The Daily Sun,
And now, Hathaway House is gone. After reading the news stories from five or six years ago, Hathaway House should, in fact, still be standing. I find it unreal that the city stands by and says "What can we do?"... That's easy — have developers stand by their word. Other cities and towns around the state and country take pride and honor in their historic buildings for what they stand for in our history.
Hathaway House is now to be replaced by a strip mall. One of Laconia's most beautiful buildings gone due promises not being kept by Dunkin' Donuts and others not doing their job. The entire Planning Board should be replaced and the planning director should be removed.
Is Laconia doomed to become a throw-away community and keep repeating its history's mistakes? A very angry and let-down resident of New Hampshire.
