Document Description
The applicants propose soil contamination cleanup and redevelopment of the Sacchi property. The property consists of three separate parcels which were formerly Sacchi's Car Dealership garage and show room and are currently occupied by the Internews office, the Bike Library and Humboldt Hospice. The application focuses primarily upon the Bike Library which includes the majority of the known contamination present on site. Once removed, the parcels would be used for principally permitted commercial uses. The redevelopment portion of the project includes the conversion of an existing buidling into several tenant improvement spaces with a common lobby and bathrooms. Any changes to the elements considered "historically significant" will be in compliance with Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties. Project includes contamination cleanup conducted according to the August 8, 2005 Subsurface Investigation Workplan prepared by SounPacific Environmental Services.
