Flower Hill Residents Speak Out About St. Francis Hospital
The majority of the August monthly meeting of the board of trustees of Flower Hill was spent on the public hearing for the proposed expansion of St. Francis Hospital. Since the trustees had already approved the resolution for notice of completion of the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) last month, this hearing was to give a final overall look at the components of the study to be sure that everyone who had a stake in the proposed construction could he heard. Several residents of Oaktree Lane and Crabapple Road appeared and voiced their concerns. The comments addressed the issues of excessive overhead lighting, night deliveries, street parking and general noise. The residents asked whether these problems would be alleviated or exacerbated during the construction and afterward. Mayor Damascus took a firm stand and insisted that the representatives of the hospital, James Proce and Ruth E. Hennessey keep a written record of complaints lodged by residents and the manner in which they were resolved. Teresa Elkowitz, the legal counsel for the village in this process, amended the FEIS to include specific parameters for deliveries, street parking and the sound attenuation wall. The lighting issue could be dealt with now.
