Letter: St. Luke’s expansion

This letter is in regard to St Luke’s proposal to close of parts of Jefferson street to accommodate their hospital expansion. I think the idea is ridiculous — it serves only St Luke’s needs, and not local transportation.

St Luke’s has already closed off part of Bannock for its own use. Where is this going to stop? Over the next few decades will St Luke’s still occupy half of Boise’s Downtown if you let them? St Luke’s is nothing short of a health care bully. They have become so large that they cannot understand the word no. Just look at the way they are fighting the recent court’s decision regarding the lawsuit with Saint Al’s. Please do the great citizens of Boise a favor and deny the street closure proposal.
