Statement from City of Hope

City of Hope has submitted an application with Duarte city officials to begin the public review process for the City of Hope Campus Plan, a coordinated planning approach to guide the development of our main campus in Duarte over the next 20 years.

The Campus Plan is a proposal that will enable City of Hope to enlarge our research capabilities, strengthen our training programs, and improve the superb patient care we have delivered on our Duarte campus, which extends into neighboring Irwindale, for more than a century. The Plan envisions development at strategic locations within our campus borders, primarily in the central core of our campus, to create new efficiencies and synergies within our internationally recognized research and patient care programs.

The filing of the application is the first step in a comprehensive public review process governed by local agencies and the California Environmental Quality Act. City of Hope understands that a full environmental impact report (EIR) will be prepared by the City of Duarte, with public meetings and hearings to come in the future. We are committed to working in close collaboration with our neighbors, community members, city leaders and other stakeholders as this review process moves forward.

More information about the City of Hope Campus Plan is available at www.CityofHopeCampusPlan.com.
