Lake County News

The Clearlake Planning Commission approved a use permit Tuesday for construction of a new helipad at St. Helena Hospital Clear Lake. The new helipad, which will replace the existing temporary aerial landing facility, will increase the number of types of helicopters able to land at the hospital. Following adjournment of Tuesday’s meeting, Commission Chairman Carl Webb said the upgraded facility is important in improving the area’s health care services as currently there exists no trauma center within the county.
