Stanford University’s hospital expansion project took another step toward final approval Wednesday, when the Palo Alto Planning and Transportation Commission voted in favor of a report analyzing its impacts on the environment. The commission voted 4-2 to recommend that the Palo Alto City Council certify the $3.5 billion project’s environmental impact report, and adopt a statement saying that the benefits of the project outweigh problems such as traffic and air pollution.
