UTICA - The City of Utica Planning Board has approved site plans for Mohawk Valley Health System's downtown hospital project.

The plans, approved at a meeting at City Hall Thursday afternoon, currently only include the hospital itself. Plans for a parking garage and separate medical building were not approved at Thursday's meeting, and will have to be added to the proposal at a later date.

MVHS has not yet purchased all of the properties in the proposed hospital footprint. Negotiations are ongoing with the owners of four remaining parcels of land.

MVHS officials say they plan to start demolition of structures within the hospital footprint in the next couple of weeks.
