Land deal surrounding Florida hospital in hands of voters
St. Petersburg Times, March 5, 2008
A proposed agreement between Helen Ellis Memorial Hospital, Tarpon Springs, FL, and a developer could bring doctors, jobs and affordable housing to the the city, officials say. Three referendum questions will ask Tarpon Spring voters to amend the city's lease with the hospital. If approved, two parcels of land just north of the hospital would be made available to developers who propose a mixed-use project at the site.
