Both sides will present their cases to Council.
Wednesday night, a special session of the Santa Clarita City
Council will take place with one goal in mind; close the Henry Mayo/G&L
Realty public hearing and vote on the matter.
The controversial expansion plans drew fire from a resident
group called Smart Growth SCV when plans for a gigantic 25 year master plan
were unveiled. The original plan called for over half a million square feet of
additions to the existing campus site, including six medical office buildings,
five parking structures and two potential hospital facilities.
After five years of opposition, revision and public testimony,
the plan now offers up 340,000 square feet of new proposals: three medical
office buildings, three above-ground parking structures, one subterranean
parking structure, and potentially one new hospital.
Smart Growth SCV has not yet given up the fight, as they are
still pushing for more changes to the plan.
Both sides of the issue will have one more chance to make
their case before the City Council Wednesday night, after which a vote is
expected. KHTS AM-1220 will be covering the meeting and posting a story on www.hometownstation.com directly
following the Council’s decision.
