City Council to discuss proposed hospital near Woodlake

City Council is scheduled to discuss the proposed Expo Parkway Behavioral Healthcare Hospital tomorrow night.

A discussion regarding the facility has been postponed for months due to concerns raised by the Woodlake community. The facility would be located across Highway 160 on Expo Parkway.

Concerns regarding the facility included a lack of outreach to the Woodlake community regarding the project, concerns related to security, a lack of nearby public transportation, the proximity of the facility to railroad tracks, and the proximity of the facility to the American River Parkway and Utilities drainage facilities.

City officials outline their responses to these concerns in their report (see below).

Council is scheduled to discuss this at their weekly meeting tomorrow at 6 p.m. at New City Hall, (915 I Street).
