The regular meeting of CANDO was called to order at 6:00 p.m., on Tuesday, January 18, 2022.  The meeting was conducted by Zoom video-conference.  The Chair and Secretary-Treasurer were present.  

The agenda and minutes of the November meeting were approved by unanimous consent.

Leilani Slama gave a presentation on Salem Health’s request for a variance from land use standards for signage in connection with the patient tower (Building A) expansion to provide 150 ICU-ready beds (no net increase in the number of beds) and shelled space on the first and second floors for future needs.  The building is slated to open in July 2022.  The signage is informational/directional.

Bryant Baird’s motion to submit written comments in support of the variance request passed unanimously.   

There being no further business before the board, the Chair adjourned the meeting at 6:37.
