Letter: Keep old hospital building intact

Dear editor:

I am writing regarding your story, "Town hires 'fairness monitor' to oversee potential sale of old Niagara-on-the-Lake hospital site," (April 8).

I may be one of the few or possibly the only one with the following opinion: It is my wish that whomever buys the old NOTL hospital site does so with the town's stipulation that the hospital building exterior stays intact.

Certainly, some renos may be needed to windows, doors, etc., as well as some major changes to the interior, but I believe the overall exterior should not change dramatically.

Many cities and towns keep former important buildings and repurpose them into something else.

I would hope that years down the road future generations will know that this building the town wishes to sell was once a thriving hospital.
