Document Description
The proposed project involves the conversion of an existing 6,696± square-foot office building into a 6,876± square-foot medical office building for Dignity Health on a 0.92 acre site (APN 016~173~49). The project would remodel the interior of the building and construct one 180± square foot addition.

Site improvements consist of a new accessible path of travel to the public right-of-way, new accessible ramp to the main entrance, landscape enhancements, and new monument sign.
