A plan for a 30-bed in-patient hospital by Mount Carmel Health System near Emerald Parkway and Interstate 270 in Dublin has advanced to the next stage of approvals.

The Dublin Planning and Zoning Commission on March 3 unanimously approved a recommendation for the rezoning of 35 acres from a restricted suburban residential district to a planned-unit development. The commission also approved a preliminary development plan for the project.

The next step is for Dublin City Council to consider the commission’s recommendation to approve the rezoning, after which Mount Carmel would submit a final development plan to the commission, said Andrew Kohn, a public affairs officer for Dublin.

The final development plan would not require council approval, Kohn said.

There is no minimum requirement for City Council to consider the commission’s rezoning recommendation, and Mount Carmel would submit the final development plan at its own discretion, he said.
