A short note from UCCSC Redevelopment Project Co-Manager to UCCSC Congregation
The designated trees, a number of which were dying, have been removed. The mandated abatement of the West Wing has been done. New power poles have been set up. What pedestrians have been seeing of late is a tree-less Arroyo Street along our property with green mesh fencing and apparent stand-still. I want to assure you that hard work to move things along is continuing, although not high profile nor visible unless you happen to be in the area when technicians, other Co-Manager Bob Stafford or I are around.
The church property dates back to 1928 and multiple construction-reconstruction projects have taken place since then. Unexpected old utility lines have been uncovered which then needed to go through the process with the City and utility agencies.
Currently there are 6 multi-family, 8 commercial, and 13 multi-use projects on-line in San Carlos. All 6 of the multi-family, 2 of the commercial and all 13 multi-use projects are on the west side of El Camino where we are. This load requires that the City adjust their staffing needs. Growth has growing pains and there is a domino effect on the progress of all projects, including ours.
To continue to meet the child-care needs of the community, The Children’s Place remains open for business. Certain work cannot be done during the week days which leave only Saturdays to perform the next essential step, shutting down the utility lines to separate them. We do expect to accomplish that in mid-June.
We thank you for your patience and understanding. Meanwhile, do think of the new Church To-Be. If you have any specific questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 415-235-3343.
