COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A court ruling is allowing a Cleveland hospital to build a helipad on the roof of a new building.

The decision by the Ohio Supreme Court permits the Cleveland Clinic Foundation to build the helipad on the roof of a garage at Fairview Hospital, the only hospital in Cleveland without a helipad.

The court’s unanimous decision Wednesday overturned a lower court ruling that had determined zoning laws prohibited a helipad on the site.

Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor said the evidence was clear that Cleveland zoning laws allowed a helipad because it will be built on hospital grounds and is related to the hospital’s current function.
