Plans to expand the Santa Clarita Valley’s only hospital return to the City Council in a public hearing Tuesday, including its construction sequence and potential environmental effects.

Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital’s plans call for nine new buildings on the 30.4-acre hospital campus in Valencia, according to Community Development Director Paul Brotzman.

Residents and community activists criticized previous versions of the plan for a perceived lack of guarantees to build the key 120-bed in-patient hospital.

The 15-year master plan also includes three medical office buildings and four parking structures.

The council will also consider the latest development agreement, which outlines the developer’s guarantees to the community.

The city staff recommends the council discuss the plans, provide direction to the staff and continue the public hearing to a City Council special meeting on Nov. 19.

The public participation period usually scheduled at the beginning of the council meetings follows the public hearing, said City Clerk Sharon Dawson.
