A group of neighbors near the site of a proposed hospital in Fountain Hills has asked the Town Council and staff to delay issuing building permits until they “ensure that the few wishes of the neighbors who have worked hard to compromise with this group, and have asked for very little, are listened to as promised by the mayor [in June].”
The neighbors made their position known during the call to the public portion of the regular council session on Dec. 17. They also wrote to the council and staff expressing their concerns.
In a letter sent to the council on Dec. 10, resident Larry Meyers stated, “I am writing you to inform you that certain events have come to pass with regard to the hospital project at Saguaro and Trevino. As a backdrop to this project, which we [neighbors] all agreed to support as long as the developer (the doctor group) was willing to work through a few issues with the neighbors to provide an environment that promotes ‘good neighbors in the neighborhood,’ there were only a few things the neighbors wanted to see corrected.
