To The Daily Sun,
I've been following the discussion about what to do about the tree on Union Avenue that appears to be blocking the sight of drivers to get out of a parking lot. I have two suggestions and think either one would make a win-win situation.
1. Require the owner of the mall to provide traffic coordinators to direct traffic. (No cost to Laconia).
2. Mount mirrors to assist drivers in checking traffic conditions. (Owner should pay to get these installed and maintained)
I believe the owner of Dunkin' Donuts has shown he can't be trusted to take care of historical buildings and landmarks, and he should not be given free rein with the care of the tree. But he must be expected to pay to care for the tree, get the tarmac removed around the tree so it can breathe and grow as needed, and provide a solution that doesn't cost the city of Laconia more money.
