PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Parents in Lehi say they plan to protest a proposed extended-stay hotel next to Fox Hollow Elementary.

The Lehi Planning Commission is expected to debate the hotel's permit and site plan tomorrow night. The hotel would share a border with the elementary and parents say that could be dangerous.

They say they are concerned that the hotel could attract drug users and pedophiles looking to prey on their children.

To substantiate their worries the group of parents has gathered media reports of crimes from extended-stay hotels including drug busts and fatal shootings.

They have passed out notices on about 1,300 doors of local homes and expect more than 100 people will show up to rally against the hotel at the planning commission meeting.
