244 - 284 A Street is tenth on the agenda. You can drop in and out to see how the meeting is progressing.  Zoom in to discover more about the 10 test pits and 58 test borings on the development site and its impacts on groundwater, stormwater management and the neighborhood. 

The proposed test borings will be approximately 2-in. to 4-in. diameter and will be advanced between approximately 5- to 60-feet below existing surface grades. Deeper boreholes are anticipated to be performed using a truck-mounted drill rig, while shallower explorations may be conducted using a direct-push (Geoprobe®) rig. The test pits will be roughly 10 feet by 10 feet to a depth of about 8 to 10 feet, with the pavement being sawcut and taken offsite for proper disposal. Greater details and impacts are outlined in the application.
