Town hall meeting Tuesday on BBGH expansion plans

As plans to continue to develop for an 80,000 square foot expansion at Box Butte General Hospital, a town hall meeting will be held Tuesday night at 7 pm to update you on the project.

Hospital CEO Dan Griess says the meeting, which will be held at the performing arts center, will include displays of the latest architectural renderings.

Griess says public feedback will be very important. He says they want to engage the community as much as possible through this process, and allow them the opportunity to give them feedback at different points in the progress of the design phase. Griess says that should take until at least summer if not fall of this year.

Medical planners and architects from BWBR from St. Paul, Minnesota, and others involved in the process will be on hand to share with the public to share all the work that's been done since around Thanksgiving. Griess says they will then open it up for questions and feedback throughout the evening.

The 80,000 square-foot addition will be constructed west of the current facility and run adjacent to Box Butte Avenue. Griess says the building designers will also be looking for public input on color schemes.

The town hall meeting is set for Tuesday night at 7 at the performing arts center.
