LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

A lawsuit to stop a proposed hospital development in Lee County has been scheduled to be heard next week in Lee County Superior Court.

The Grand Island Homeowners Association is suing the Lee County Parks and Recreation Authority over the proposed hospital development on the Grand Island Golf Club course.

The court hearing is scheduled for December 8th with Judge Rucker Smith presiding.

The Association claims in their suit that homeowners have a "perpetual easement for vision and sight" to the golf course property, and say the hospital would be an artificial barrier to block their view.

County leaders said they are glad the suit will be heard soon.

"There is a temporary restraining order. That will be addressed on the 8th. At this point I am under the impression the entire case will be heard," said Lee County Commission Chairman Rick Muggridge.

County leaders said planning for the hospital development have carried on, and they hope to settle the homeowners' lawsuit before the end of the year.
