California Northstate University Revised Medical Campus Application Submitted

California Northstate University Revised Medical Campus Application Submitted

California Northstate University (CNU) in mid-April submitted a revised application to build in Elk Grove its new Medical Center Campus.  CNU submitted an incomplete application to the City of Elk Grove in late 2018. According to the City of Elk Grove, “The City received a revised submittal on April 16, 2019. The application is currently under review.”

Included in the review is an evaluation of the proposed uses of the site. Additionally, the review includes a look at site design and environmental impact. The environmental review is also said to include a look at how the hospital project could impact the quality of life in Elk Grove, including noise and air quality, as well as traffic and transportation. The review, known as an Environmental Impact Report (EIR), will be available for public inspection and comment. Elk Grove officials say they expect the full review process to take about a year to complete, during which time the public will be able to offer feedback. The Elk Grove City Council are expected to vote on the proposal sometime thereafter.

Currently, CNU’s application calls for a change to Elk Groves zoning rules. The application also calls for changes to Elk Grove’s municipal code.  “The Applicant is requesting a General Plan Amendment to change the land use designation from Light Industrial to Employment Center, and a Rezone to change the zoning on a portion of the site from the GC zone to the Industrial-Office Park (MP) zoning district. The Applicant is also requesting text amendments to Elk Grove Municipal Code Section 23.42.040 and General Plan Policy ER 2-3 which relate to flooding.”

The City of Elk Grove lists the changes the CNU requested on its website. CNU’s proposal is under scrutiny by residents of Elk Grove’s Stonelake neighborhood. CNU identified the area as a target for the hospital project. See the information submitted by CNU here:
