Project Update – September 11

Permit Appeal Update

On Monday afternoon another appeal of a Lafayette Park Renovation Project building permit was filed with the Board of Appeals.  This latest appeal suspends Permit 1610, which covers the RPD operation’s maintenance complex (cargo container pad and trellis enclosure).  This new appeal will follow essentially the same process as the appeal filed against Permit 0448.  The Board of Appeals hearing date has been set for Wednesday, October 24, at 5 PM in City Hall Room 416.

Project Schedule Update

It is likely we will see a delay to project completion as a result of the holds placed on the permits.  We have not been able to perform critical concrete work during the contract’s dry-weather window.  This type of work moves slowly in the wet season, so complete schedule recovery at this point looks unlikely.  We do not know currently the full extent of the delays.  We will inform stakeholders of them as soon as they are clear.  Be assured that the Contractor and project team will investigate all possible avenues to expedite the work in order to deliver this project to the Lafayette Park community as quickly as possible.
