UTICA – The Mohawk Valley Health System has finalized the site plan for the new downtown Utica hospital, and three properties have been removed from the plan.
According to MVHS officials, the three properties no longer included in the site plan are Eggers Caryl & Corrigan at the corner of Oriskany and Broadway streets, Rockford Auto Glass at the corner of Oriskany and Washington streets, and a building at the corner of Lafayette and Broadway streets owned by The Orange Tree.
The owners of those properties have been notified by MVHS officials that they’re no longer included in the finalized plan, which includes a refinement of the health care campus boundaries, the hospital size and placement, and the location of ancillary buildings and parking. Hospital officials say that plan doesn’t include the aesthetics of the facility because the designs are still being developed.
The Dormitory Authority of the State of New York has also finished its initial review of the property appraisals, and they’ve requested additional information. MVHS officials say they’re working with property owners to complete the DASNY requests within 60 days.
