Peninsula: Medical complex up for review tonight

Sequoia Hospital officials are nearing final city approval of their plans for a new, $240 million hospital and medical complex.

The project — including a 148,000-square-foot hospital that would be built next to the existing structure — will be discussed at a Planning Commission meeting tonight.

If approved by the City Council, the hospital would be on track for construction to begin this fall.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road, Redwood City.

Speedy security program contract to be awarded today

The San Francisco International Airport Commission today is scheduled to award a major contract for the registered traveler program — designed to speed preapproved travelers through security lines — to Verified Identity Pass Inc.

The program, expected to start this fall, came amid much fanfare as San Francisco and airport officials touted its usefulness for business travelers, who are expected to be the bulk of the program’s users.

Norman Y. Mineta San José International Airport, which sees the bulk of Silicon Valley business travelers, has such a program in place as well.
