West Park Healthcare Centre will be hosting a public meeting regarding its expansion project Monday, Jan. 14 at 6:30 p.m.
“There are big changes happening from the original application,” said York South-Weston Councillor Frances Nunziata, who will be in attendance.
“We want the community to know there are changes from the first phase, so when construction starts people will be aware.”
Also on the agenda is a discussion about new signage for the West Park hospital that will help direct residents to the health care centre.

“West Park hospital is a real jewel, but the problem is it’s hidden,” said Nunziata. “So, we’re finally getting a visual of where it is (with the new signage).”
Residents will also be informed further about a new traffic light that will help divert vehicles from residential streets, to create a safer entrance and exit to Emmett Avenue, a request that, according to Nunziata, has been 20 years in the making.
Landscaping ideas will also be discussed as well as an update on the new gateway slated to be positioned at Eglinton Avenue West and Emmett Avenue.
“This is good news for the community,” said Nunziata. “I want everyone to come out and see the benefits of this expansion, it’ll be very positive.”
