Cities may want more eldercare facilities located within their municipal borders, but a neighborhood homeowner association inside the city might feel the other way if the project is going to be located too near to its members’ residences. If the local officials mess up in complying with the enabling standards in approving the project, that fact simply gives the opposition all the more ammunition to block the development.
