Binghamton Hearing Planned On Hospital Parking

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

The Binghamton City Planning Commission is considering a request by Lourdes Hospital to turn what was established as a temporary parking lot into a permanent lot.

The 63-space lot on Lourdes Road was approved in 2009 to help make up for parking areas which would be unavailable because of a major hospital construction project.

The temporary use of the lot was expected to end in August 2011. Lourdes now is seeking permission to continue using the lot.

The commission has scheduled a public hearing on the application for Monday at 5:20 p.m. The session will be held in the City Council chambers.

Senior planner Leigh McCullen says the commission could act on the request at Monday’s meeting.

A planning commission staff report on the application may be viewed here.

Lourdes Hospital had announced plans in 2008 to construct a 350-space parking garage as part of a $70 million dollar initiative to expand and update its facilities on Riverside Drive.

Construction on the garage project has not started.
