Hospital Reuse

From David Suderman:

My study of the historical and legal background to the Way Park/Hospital Site issue (61 page PDF doc) is done. It is long and detailed. Can you make use of it in some way?

Nfld News: Hospital reuse proposals due in two weeks


City Council Meeting

Hospital Reuse committee members Alex Beeby (L) and Meg Hargreaves presented the committee report to the City Council last night. The Council opted to 1) keep considering appropriate reuse of the building; 2) keep entertaining the option to return all 2.6 acres to Way Park; 3) consider selling some property for additional single family housing that could help pay for hospital and park-related expenses. They did not opt to further consider any legal or ethical implications regarding the Way family gift.

A two-week online discussion forum on issues surrounding the reuse of the city hospital. The forum begins Monday, Dec. 1 and continues through Dec. 15.

You can jump right to the hospital reuse discussion forum or you can browse the resources and links page we've set up, which includes dates of upcoming meetings, links to the Concept Plans and other documents at Northfield City Hall, links to newspaper coverage and op-ed pieces on the issue, and a special comment form for those who just want to submit comments without particpating in the Web Cafe discussion.
