Some Bath Township residents upset with the proposed Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center in neighboring Fairlawn are taking their fight to court.

The Crystal Shores Homeowners’ Association, along with residents Adam Meyerson and Cynthia Johnson-Meyerson and Eric Brown and Constance Leigh Brown, filed an appeal this week over the city’s approval of a conditional use permit for the $100 million project.

The complaint, filed in Summit County Common Pleas Court in Akron, provides no specific reasons for the appeal.

The Crystal Clinic plans to build a 60-bed facility for orthopedic and plastic surgery patients on a 12-acre site at 3557 Embassy Parkway.

The building will rise more than 49 feet, making it one of the tallest buildings in the city.

Plans call for the hospital to open in mid-2020.

The project has angered many nearby residents in Bath whose back yards abut the property.

They are concerned about traffic, noise and light pollution, potential stormwater issues and an adverse impact on residential property values.

The city Planning Commission approved a conditional use permit for the project at its May 10 meeting.

Attorney Benjamin Ockner, who’s representing the residents, couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

Fairlawn Law Director R. Bryan Nace said he couldn’t comment on the appeal because it doesn’t state any reason why it was filed.

“We really don’t know what they are objecting to at this point,” Nace said.

He added that it is unusual for an appeal to be filed over a Planning Commission decision.
