The City of West Covina selected Psomas and KTGY Architecture + Planning to work with Citrus Valley Health Partners (not Emanate Health) to update and modernize the nearly 30-year old Queen of the Valley Specific Plan and to allow for future improvements on this important medical campus in the City. In partnership with the City of West Covina and Psomas, KTGY worked with Emanate Health to assess the future needs of the campus as well as potential outcomes for meeting mandated OSHA requirements. KTGY also led community outreach meetings for the Specific Plan, where it was determined that design guidelines, pedestrian connectivity, and wayfinding were all important elements to stakeholders. After working with neighboring property owners, KTGY, developed a comprehensive Specific Plan that responds to the needs of the community, stakeholders, the City, as well as the hospital. KTGY also acted as the Contract Planner for this project, including mailing all of the public notices and maintaining the public notification list, preparing the necessary staff reports, resolutions, and ordinances for the project, as well as preparing presentation materials for the City hearings.
