Yes, yes, and yes to Brian Kent, Frank O’Hara and Sen. Roger Katz for their op-ed on the proposed new state building in Augusta. (”Maine Compass: Take time to do new state building right,” Aug. 22.)

Our public buildings and spaces speak loudly to who we are. Getting the development along Capitol Street near the State House right is important now and down the line.
