I’ve heard a lot of complaints from people who feel like the city of Boise is excluding East End residents from weighing in on the proposed expansion of St. Luke’s Boise Medical Center’s Downtown campus.
They point to the fact that the City Council and Mayor David Bieter didn’t allow public comment at Tuesday night’s workshop on the expansion. I guess I’d be pretty upset, too, if I regularly used the section of Jefferson Street that St. Luke’s wants to close and watched a team of hospital officials pitch their plan for several hours without hearing a detailed presentation opposing it.
I doubt the city is trying to silence critics of the St. Luke’s plan. For one thing, Deanna Smith, a member of the East End Neighborhood association’s board, was at the table for Tuesday’s meeting. The meeting was set up to allow anyone at the table to comment, ask questions, etc. Smith didn’t say much.
