Covina hospital could get second chance

It looks like there is hope after all for the expansion of a psychiatric hospital — although the residents who have been fighting Aurora Charter Oak Hospital sure won’t be happy to hear that.

Last month, the Covina City Council voted 4-1 to deny a 39-bed expansion to Aurora Charter Oak Hospital. But now city staff seem to be urging the council to reconsider their vote, and send the issue back to the Planning Commission for further modifcations.

The council will discuss this at 7 p.m. on Tuesday at Covina City Hall, 125 East College St.
