Letter to the editor: Why downtown Greensburg for hotel?

Regarding the article “Greensburg woos developers for downtown hotel project” (Feb. 1, TribLIVE): As a resident of Greensburg who frequents the library and post office, the idea of a hotel so near both places on Pennsylvania Avenue is a strange choice of site.

Did anyone do a study on the impact on businesses, the post office and the library that construction would entail? As to valet parking, this is a joke. The lot adjacent to the post office has two small rows of public parking and the rest is private.

Why not put the hotel in the soon-to-be-vacated Sears store in the mall? A casino is planned for the mall; what better place than near a hotel? Plus, a new restaurant is being built nearby.

There has to be a better, more creative use for the buildings on Pennsylvania Avenue than trying to squeeze a hotel in the area.

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
