CALIFORNIA: Planned Parenthood Aims to Open Clinic at Former Chevy's Restaurant Site in North Fair Oaks




 

San Jose Mercury News (08.29.12)

Planned Parenthood is remodeling a former restaurant in unincorporated North Fair Oaks with the goal of opening it as a medical clinic next year. The clinic will offer reproductive and preventative health care services, including cancer screenings, testing and treatment for STDs, contraceptives and HIV tests. During the remodeling phase, Planned Parenthood will park a medical van on the site on Tuesdays to provide limited women’s health services. San Mateo County Senior Planner Dave Holbrook said the former restaurant site at 2907 El Camino Real is zoned for commercial use, which allows medical clinics. Having enough parking will be a consideration before the county issues a permit, Holbrook said. Lupe Rodriguez, a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, said the health organization is “absolutely confident” the site has enough parking spots. Last year, plans to open a clinic about a block away were dropped because of insufficient parking at that site.
