SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Not everyone is happy about a new entertainment complex planned for Scottsdale.

The construction site sits in one of the most popular party areas of Oldtown Scottsdale. The Scottsdale retail plaza on Shoeman Lane, just east of Scottsdale and Camelbacks roads, is slated to be home to a new indoor-outdoor beach club and two more bars.

People who live nearby fear the new complex will cause even more congestion and illegal parking on a block that already has a limited number of spots.

Mayor Jim Lane said the city is working to prevent any disturbance.

"We want to make sure that it works for everybody," he said. "Certainly we're working always to try to mitigate any kind of difficulty."

Lane said the businesses have agreed to a number of stipulations, including keeping the loud music indoors. The complex is set to open by the beginning of next year.
