Talks continue on Clinton health care clinic location

CLINTON — The group investigating locations for a new health care clinic still needs more information about the potential sites.

The three options discussed Monday were the same three as last week — the lower section of Chancy Park, green space and parking lots south of the Roosevelt building on Seventh Avenue South and South Fourth Street, and the area south of Hy-Vee.

All three have potential, group members said, but issues remain on all three choices.

The development to Chancy Park would be focused on a parking lot and a damaged tennis court.

Although the Clinton Historic Preservation Commission voted to OK potential development to Chancy Park, worries persisted regarding Community Health Care Inc.’s placement in another park.

The last location targeted, the parking lot adjacent to Clinton Park, caused several groups to come forward in opposition for various reasons, including preservation of park land.

Sister Anne Martin Phelan also said the Chancy Park location isn’t as centrally located as other options.

“In the downtown area, there’s land,” Phelan said. “We just have to find it.”

The area south of Hy-Vee is still a possibility, but more information needs to be relayed to Hy-Vee regarding the specifications. CHC Chief Executive Officer Tom Bowman said he forwarded information regarding the clinic to Hy-Vee Assistant Vice President Peter Hosch. The business is reviewing the plans and more information will be known later.

The final site, the lot on Seventh Avenue South and South Fourth Street, also will require more discussion.

Bowman said the area appeared a little narrow for the group’s specifications. However, he wouldn’t be sure until he looked at the site.

The group would have to meet with the Clinton School Board regarding the land, and although councilmen-elect Ed O’Neill said he’s heard from board members that they would be willing to sell the property, City Administrator Jessica Kinser said there have been developers interested in the Roosevelt building, making it possibly more difficult to secure the land to the south of the building.
