Opposition to proposed Green Valley hospital

Updated:

GREEN VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) - A homeowners association and a committee overseeing a historic ranch property owned by Pima County are opposing a proposed hospital in Green Valley.

Residents of the Springs at Santa Rita northeast of the proposed hospital site say a two-story hospital will hurt their property values.

A committee overseeing the historic, county-owned Canoa Ranch also has sent a letter to county officials citing "several serious concerns" about the planned hospital. They cite vibration from medical helicopters that could damage ranch structures.

The hospital is planned for a 22-acre site just east of Interstate 19 about 20 miles south of Tucson. A Scottsdale firm that has an agreement with Tucson Medical Center plans to build the hospital.

Pima County's planning and zoning commission is holding a hearing on the site plan Wednesday.
