Please provide feedback on Goal #2 recommendations.
Goal #2: Ensure appropriate safety measures are in place prior to demolition activities.
Staff recommendations include:
1. On-site pre-construction meeting. Require an on-site pre-construction meeting before activating a demolition permit and the start of demolition activities. This mandatory meeting will be a requirement to verify environmental and tree protections are in place and that all utilities have been capped or appropriately modified for use during construction.
2. Enforce the state requirements for asbestos and lead. Require acknowledgement of compliance. Require evidence that an asbestos survey has been completed or that a certification letter from a licensed engineer or architect has been provided in compliance with state regulations. Require notarized acknowledgement from the contractor that they will comply with applicable state and federal regulations for asbestos and lead removal and disposal.
3. Require permits to pass final inspection. Require all demolition permits to pass final inspection prior to releasing a permit for new construction intended to replace the demolished structure.
