Neighbor Jane Fritz said at one point Dr. Steve Menke, senior partner at the clinic, provided her a proposed image of what the clinic's expansion could look like, occupying at most 2 acres of land.
"You do the math," Fritz said. "How is it going to fit there?"
Councilman J.R. Richards said the council must do what's best "for the greatest number of citizens — not what's popular, what's best." Richards was the sole vote against overriding the mayor's veto.
Councilman Jeremy Weller said while some believe he doesn't listen to the public, that's not the case.
"Unfortunately I've sided with the side you're not on, so it appears I'm maybe not listening to you," Weller said. "We've listened three times, and this is the fourth meeting about this. There's not that much new information that could be presented that we haven't heard in the previous three meetings."
Despite the persistent protest by neighbors at council meetings, Councilman Brian Morgan said he's heard "overwhelming support" for the rezoning through phone calls from the general public.
