West Side Farm Property
A Land Use Planning Committee was formed to direct this work in 2019 and as a result, we identified approximately 150 acres on the site to preserve for our use. We will continue work with the broader community on uses for the remaining acreage. This work will occur over the next several years.
Background: The farm property represents a much longer-term opportunity for not only our health system, but also the broader community and region. We anticipate the need to expand beyond our current main campus on 17th Street as we look into the future; however, we know that we do not need to entire parcel for those needs. Careful consideration, analysis and strategy are required to determine the best use for the entire acreage as well as our future use.
