Planners to see clinic’s redesign
Palomar Pomerado Health (PPH) will present its plans for a downscaled health clinic on 13th Street at the Ramona Community Planning Group’s meeting on Thursday, Oct. 6.
The meeting will start at 7 p.m. in the Ramona Library Community Room at 1275 Main St.
The size of the hospital district’s health clinic has been reduced from a two-story 36,000-square-foot building to a 7,600-square-foot, single-story building. The re-design conforms to county zoning requirements.
The clinic’s downsizing is due to a major prospective tenant withdrawing from the project and inadequate leasing interest with other medical providers, say PPH officials.
Palomar Pomerado Health’s proposed clinic will be on 13th Street across from the Ramona Library, allowing flexibility for future growth, according to PPH. Access will be from 13th Street instead of Main and 14th streets as originally planned.
Money for the project comes from a $496 million bond voters approved in November 2004.
