Why is the city willing to retract, rewrite or just plainly ignore rules and statutes for a project that will negatively impact a community that was never intended to sustain a project of this size?

Elk Grove Resident

It is a massive project in the wrong place and will forever negatively impact the Stonelake community and the west side of Elk Grove.

Elk Grove Resident

The 45 day comment period is inadequate given the massive size, mixed land uses, scope and complex nature of the proposed project and should be extended to 90 days.

Elk Grove Resident

The building will forever alter the visual character of the area. The DEIR describes this impact as significant and unavoidable. For this reason alone, the project should be denied.

Elk Grove Resident

This project is way too big for this particular location. Not to mention the effects on community and wildlife.

Elk Grove Resident

The amount of traffic that this hospital will generate is too large for a residential area. The streets were never designed for such a huge endeavor.

Elk Grove Resident

The organization, CNU, has demonstrated time and again that they lack ethics, business acumen or accountable leadership.

Elk Grove Resident

We are having this project thrust upon us long after we made a careful decision to make this quiet area of Elk Grove our home.

Elk Grove Resident

We would go from little to no crime, to 1,600 calls for police per year, an average of 4.38 per day.

The building will forever alter the visual character of the area. The DEIR describes this impact as significant and unavoidable. For this reason alone, the project should be denied.

Elk Grove Resident

Negative consequences include possible collisions, noise and light disturbances and added pollution, all of which will affect the life cycle and natural habits of cranes, geese and many other species of birds.

Elk Grove Resident

The traffic will be a nightmare!

Elk Grove Resident

Quite simply, a large industrial project in a planned residential neighborhood is not going to work.

Elk Grove Resident

There can be no question that this project would destroy the quality of life for the citizens in this area as well as the migratory birds, other animals, and the environment.

Elk Grove Resident

The for-profit status of CNU indicates its mission is to satisfy shareholders, not patients.

Elk Grove Resident

It seems contradictory in purpose for a medical center to be built, only to harm the health of the people and wildlife near it.

Elk Grove Resident

The number of employees a center like this would require would cause such traffic issues that coming or leaving home would be miserable.

Elk Grove Resident

10 to 15 years of really LOUD construction noise will be horrible.

Elk Grove Resident

This monstrosity would cause the unnecessary death of birds and animals and it would effect the migritory bird path negatively.

Elk Grove Resident

As Dignity Health is building a hospital in Elk Grove, the CNU complex is NOT needed nor welcome.

Elk Grove Resident

This project will greatly impact not only my property value but also my standard of living.

Elk Grove Resident

Residents and business owners who live in the area of the Northstate University Medical Center Project have all been very clear that WE DO NOT WANT THIS.

Elk Grove Resident

This plan will become an eyesore and a traffic, noise, light and air pollution nightmare. It will damage the very character of this community.

Elk Grove Resident

We do not need this. We already have outpatient healthcare from all four major carriers.

Elk Grove Resident

Possible collisions, noise and light disturbances and added pollution will affect the life cycle and natural habits of cranes, geese and many other species of birds.

Elk Grove Resident

The political process that has allowed the project to reach this point is littered with a lack of transparency, back room deals, questionable ethics and a lack of any collaborative effort.

Elk Grove Resident

Forcing such a complex into a dense residential area makes little sense considering how much available land there is in East / South East Elk Grove.

Elk Grove Resident

How can our political representatives think it is permissible to accept financial "support" in exchange for promoting this project which will ruin our quality of life and decrease our home values?

Elk Grove Resident

I am concerned with the extended congestion and delay of not only for the next 10 years of construction, but in addition the rest of my life in Stonelake

Elk Grove Resident

Noise and light pollution would disturb roosting birds, while helicopter flights and the massive hospital building would pose a danger for bird strikes.
