Stanford project receives final approval after delay
The Mercury News

With final approvals in hand, Stanford University is getting ready to start construction on its massive $5 billion hospital expansion project. The Palo Alto City Council voted 7-0 Monday to green-light the project after a three-week delay because of concerns about construction’s impacts on a day care near the Hoover Pavilion. Stanford agreed to delay its project while it found a new home for the Arboretum Children’s Center, which provides care for about 140 children of Stanford faculty, employees and students.
