Letter – Eyesore at hospital site

Editor, The Smithfield Times:

It’s good to not read of any future housing development proposals these past few weeks. I’m sure this will be short-lived.

I would, however, like to vent on a project that is underway now: the new Riverside Hospital, which I feel is a wonderful and needed necessity. But it has immediately begun as an eyesore. I’m sure the town and the county have laws against graffiti. So I wonder, as I drive by on Route 10, who would allow the construction fence around the project to be displayed with signage that looks a lot like a line of vandalized inner box cars?
