Sun News Service

Members of the public and Gateway subdivision residents are encouraged to attend a meeting on the proposed Tahoe Forest Hospital Western Addition project.

The Public Scoping meeting will be held in the Tahoe Forest Hospital District board room on Sept. 6 at 6:30 p.m.

The hospital district is proposing to expand the Truckee facility by building a 40,000-square-foot addition to the west of the existing hospital. The addition would be constructed over the portion of Pine Avenue between Tahoe Drive and Spring Lane abandoned by the town several years ago. Pine Avenue would no longer serve as a through road. Other aspects of the project include conversion of four former residential properties to hospital uses:

– 10083 Lake Avenue -Land use is proposed to be converted from single family residential to hospital district home/health hospice office. Zoning will be converted from residential to public.

– 11023 and 11015 Spring Lane – Land use is proposed to be converted from single family residential to child care after school annex. Zoning will be converted from residential to public.

-10985 Spring Lane – Land use is proposed to be converted from single family residential to traveling nurses quarters. Zoning will be converted from residential to public.

– 10977 Spring Lane – Land use is proposed to be converted from single family residential to a counseling center. Zoning will be converted from residential to public.

The meeting is to inform local residents of the project and discuss concerns and issues from the public related to many issues including traffic circulation and parking. Tahoe Forest Hospital staff and representatives from the design team will be available to present the plan and answer questions.
