We regret to inform the tenants of SCP that it will be necessary to remove the 2 large Willow trees in the park area. About a months ago a large branch fell from the tree. This prompted us to have our arborist review the trees. The determination was that the trees have rotted in the inside and will continue to drop limbs. HortScience’s letter to us describing the health of the trees and their recommendation is availalble in our office, if you care to know more about the prognosis.
No one wants anyone to get hit by a tree limb, and we are therefore having both trees removed. We will be replanting larger trees in their place, in accordance with the 1 for 1 tree removal/planting plan we have for the campus.
We will be starting construction in the park area between the buildings this Monday, June 5th. How could this affect you?
As always, if you have questions or concerns, please feel free to call our office @ 925-924-9000 or email me. We appreciate your patience as we work to improve the property.
As of this morning (3/15/17), the Renovation project has been officially permitted by the City of Pleasanton and we can begin work! You will see a few days of mobilization where the contractors are getting people & materials in place prior to actual work being performed. We will reach out to the office managers of those first affected @ 6160 prior to actual work.
According to the posters in the building lobbies and this website, construction was supposed to start on February 6, 2017. However, we have not yet received a permit to start the work. All construction work must first be approved by the City of Pleasanton's Building Department. Once we receive a permit, work will commence immediately. We have been talking to the City almost everyday since the middle of December 2016 answering questions about the drawings and modifying the plans to incorporate City needs. We do not have a definitive date for permit receipt, but hope it will be ASAP and no later than mid-March.
You are probably noticing fencing going up around campus. These fences are to protect trees which are to remain. We place fencing to ensure these large trees are not removed accidentally or suffer damage when larger machinery is on site.
