We need to respect and preserve Laconia's existing treasures

To The Daily Sun,

I am writing in response to Michael Kitch's Tuesday article concerning the oak tree on Union Avenue. Cafua Management has already taken one of Laconia's historic landmarks from us when it razed Hathaway House instead of respecting the wishes of many dedicated citizens who wanted it preserved. The oak was not an issue for Dunkin' Donuts, or even the Dairy Queen, which has stood there for longer. Planning Director Saunders was right to back the Planning Board in stipulating that the oak remain.

Laconia may need revitalization, but in order to return it to the glory it once knew, we need to be able to respect and preserve its existing treasures in the process of adding new ones. I urge the Planning Board to continue to protect this oak and find some way to diminish its hazardous status. There must be a way to compromise without losing this natural treasure.

Angela D'Onofrio
