I see in the Oct. 25 Morning Sentinel that a successful bid was not received for the Seton campus of MaineGeneral Medical Center.

It seems to me that this would make a perfect place for a low-income, senior housing complex. The physical facilities could probably be easily converted into apartments, much like the former school on Gilman Street.

The physical location has a lot of open grassy area as well as wooded areas with established trails.

Instead of this a beautiful church with a lot of cultural history is going to be destroyed and a housing complex built in its footprint.

This facility would be in the middle of a residential area with no open spaces.

Our local church community is falling apart, and a local church is going to be destroyed. This makes no sense to me.
