Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead The proposed project would involve the demolition of the existing Whitecotton Cottage, an existing vacant 3,942 square-foot building with two stories above grade and a basement. Whitecotton Cottage, built in 1903, was the former residence for the Superintendent of the Alameda County Infirmary and is recommended as eligible for the California Register of Historical Resources because of its association with historic events. While the building remains in its historic location, it has not been maintained for approximately 20 years and is in an advanced state of disrepair. Demolition would involve removal and abatement of asbestos-containing materials and lead-based paint, excavation and disposal of approximately 222 cubic yards of soil, and rough grading of the site. There are no current redevelopment plans for the site.
