Hospital construction permit issued
BOARDMAN — The township zoning office has issued a permit for construction of a 28-bed acute care hospital on South Avenue.
Mahoning Valley Hospital plans to construct the nearly 24,000-square-foot, one-story building on South, north of the Cellular One Communications building, near the Walker Mill Road intersection.
“It’s a good use for that land,” said Darren Crivelli, zoning inspector. “It won’t generate a lot of traffic. It’s zoned commercial so we could have gotten a retail establishment. This won’t generate the traffic that a grocery store or other retail facility would.”
