ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Carilion Clinic’s Roanoke Memorial Hospital expansion plan took another step to fruition at the Roanoke City Planning Commission meeting.
According to Carillion Clinic on Monday, Nov. 13, the Commission voted to approve the following for recommendation to the Roanoke City Council:
- Close a portion of Crystal Spring Avenue from Evans Mill Road to McClanahan Road to thru traffic
- Rezone parcels of land for inclusion in the expansion plans
“This expansion will allow us to best provide services that meet the evolving needs of the communities that we serve,” said Hanah Curtis, Carilion Clinic Spokesperson.
