City Plan Commission Approves Miriam PlanThe City Plan Commission approved Miriam Hospital's master plan, which includes a multi-phase building plan. A lawyer representing SNA presented the case against the project, and was joined by dozens of neighbors passionately urging the Commission to at least delay the project until a more thorough planning process, one that takes into account all the stakeholders and not just hospital, can take place. In the end, the commission imposed some modest quality-of-life requirements on the hospital, and told them to come back in one year (rather than five) for another review. But the project, in its entirety, was give the green light.

SNA Releases Neighborhood Survey ResultsSNA released the results of a month-long survey designed to gauge neighborhood concern and opinion on Miriam Hospital's proposed expansion. The survey itself was included as an insert in the most recent neighborhood newsletter (pdf file).
results show that most neighbors are not
satisfied with the hospital's plans and are very concerned with
the negative impact of a bigger hospital on our neighborhood.
Miriam Submits Revised Master PlanThe City Plan Commission will consider a revised Institutional Master Plan submitted by Miriam Hospital. This latest plan embodies "Option E" as presented by Miriam to neighbors and to the city in several meetings earlier this year.
"Option E" is a larger expansion than the original plan, which neighbors have strongly opposed, and it would bring construction to two sites, rather than one. Miriam's continuing need for growth is a threat to our neighborhood, and must be confronted by city officials.
The City Plan Commission meeting will be held beginning at
