OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - The Oxford Planning Commission is asking officials with the city and Baptist Memorial Hospital to meet with residents at the nearby Bickerstaff Condominiums about noise from construction of a new medical center.

The commission told hospital officials a wood fence will not reduce the noise from the construction of the new Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi and a road extension.

The Oxford Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1iA4toK ) Baptist CEO Bill Henning has proposed adding storm windows to the second story windows on the back and on the sides of each condo unit and erecting a double-sided wood fence with an interior layer of mass loaded vinyl.

Bickerstaff resident Jan Cauthen says the proposal isn’t good enough those living in Bickerstaff where windows shake and walls vibrate from the construction noise.
