Proposed Eagle Mtn. Drug Rehab Group Home Delayed

" Eagle Mountain » The City Council wants more time to decide if it will let a group home for professionals recovering from substance abuse operate here.

The council voted Tuesday to table the Ark for Eagle Mountain's application until April 7. Councilmen Ryan Ireland and David Lifferth said they want more information, such as a detailed site plan showing landscaping and parking, as well as information on relapse rates from the Ark's other facilities in Utah.

But Gloria Boberg, the Ark's executive director, isn't happy about waiting even longer.

"It's just petty crap," Boberg said after the council meeting. She said the council could have approved the permit and required her to bring in the detailed plan later.

Boberg, who applied for a conditional use permit in November, accused the council of dragging its feet to appease neighbors who view the home as a threat." - Salt Lake Tribune
