Tahoe Forest Hospital to host public workshops

TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; Tahoe Forest Hospital District is hosting a public workshop to learn about proposed campus improvements.

The session will be held at Tahoe Forest Hospital in the Eskridge Conference Room, 10121 Pine Ave., Truckee, Thursday, July 1, from 5 to 7 p.m. This meeting is open to the public and an opportunity to ask questions and submit input about proposed campus improvements that will be forwarded to the Tahoe Forest Hospital District board of Directors.

Tahoe Forest Hospital District has created a CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act) document that identifies potential impacts of the proposed campus development plan and offers solutions or mitigations to those impacts. Find CEQA documents at http://www.tfhd.com or the Truckee Library, 10031 Levon Ave., or from the Administrative offices of Tahoe Forest Hospital at 10956 Donner Pass Road (corner of Pine Avenue.)

CEQA is a statute that requires state and local agencies to identify the significant environmental impacts of their actions and to avoid or mitigate those impacts, if feasible.

Public comments on the CEQA documents may be submitted in writing to Rick McConn, Chief of Facilities Development, Tahoe Forest Hospital District, P.O. Box 759, Truckee, CA 96160. Comments may also be dropped off in person to the Administrative offices at 10956 Donner Pass Road or submitted electronically to rmcconn@tfhd.com.

Deadline for public comment is 6 p.m. July 6, 2010. Tahoe Forest Hospital District will consider approving the mitigated negative declaration at their regular board meeting Tuesday, July 27, 2010, 6 p.m., Eskridge Conference Room, Tahoe Forest Hospital. The mitigated negative declaration will become final if adopted by the district. For questions about this process, please contact Rick McConn at 582-6443.
