Please, all who care for the quality of our city’s environment, dump the idea of the view-blocker Fairfield Hotel building.

We do have at least a glimmer of local quality possible. I refer to Buoy Beer’s (and others’) idea of converting an existing structure into a “boutique” hotel (“Riverfront hotel planned near downtown Astoria,” The Daily Astorian, Oct. 19).

This can be a good one. No additional messing with our views.
