Statement from City of Hope

City of Hope’s proposed Campus Plan is a blueprint for enhancing and modernizing our main campus in Duarte and Irwindale over the next 20 years. It will enable City of Hope to provide an improved experience for patients and visitors and to extend our renowned leadership in care, research and education for the next generation. At the same time, it allows us to continue being a good neighbor and valuable member of the Duarte and Irwindale communities we have called home for more than 100 years.

The City of Duarte’s release of the Draft Specific Plan and Draft Environmental Impact Report represents an important step forward in the public review and approval process guided by the California Environmental Quality Act and local agencies. We are committed to working in close collaboration with our neighbors, community members, city leaders and other stakeholders to ensure this review process is open, transparent and inclusive.
