A California preparing commission voted against Elk Grove-primarily based California Northstate University’s plan to create a $750 million teaching hospital in Elk Grove, according to nearby news station ABC 10.
The Elk Grove Planning Commission voted 3-0 this week to reject the proposal and will send that recommendation of denial to the complete city council.
In its selection, the preparing commission cited troubles with the place of the facility, according to the Sacramento Business Journal. Specifically, Planning Commission Vice Chair George Murphey stated the project’s place is on a 200-year flood plain and voted against approval mainly because there is a “want and not a need” to create a hospital in that place, according to the report.
The university filed plans in 2019 seeking approval to build a 250-bed teaching hospital adjacent to its campus in Elk Grove. A second phase referred to as for expanding the hospital to 400 beds inside 13 stories.
