Carilion’s expansion plans to come before Roanoke Planning Commission, city council
Carilion Clinic’s plan for $300 million expansions of Roanoke Memorial Hospital, a nearby behavioral health hospital and adjacent parking facilities begins its path toward needed city approvals Monday.
Roanoke’s planning commission will consider an application to rezone or change conditions on eight parcels on or near South Jefferson Street to make way for Carilion’s ambitious building projects.
Carilion also is asking the city to vacate a block of Crystal Spring Avenue between McClanahan Street and Evans Mill Road — which currently passes beneath a Carilion building — to make room for the growth.
The commission, meeting at 1:30 p.m. Monday, will host a public hearing on the plans before voting. Final approval must come from the Roanoke City Council, which likely will consider the application during its 7 p.m. Nov. 18 meeting.
Carilion executives have said they plan to spend $1 billion over the next seven years on capital improvements to their facilities, including $200 million to equip new buildings.
