General notes on spring construction

  1. Construction crews will need unhindered access to right of way areas to perform curb repairs and lawn restoration. Please do not park in the street during working hours until construction is completed to ensure that the work is completed as quickly and smoothly as possible, and please ask lawn services and other contractors to avoid street parking as well. No street parking whatsoever will be allowed in the Village while the final paving of streets is being performed.
  2. Residents may want to repair sprinklers and other underground elements that were damaged last year before the lawn restoration process begins. The fresh topsoil will be hand-raked and we do not anticipate any additional damage to these elements. Please mark sprinkler heads with flags or stakes as a precautionary measure.
  3. As subcontractors complete their work the window is closing on punch list requests. The current version of the contractor’s punch list is posted under the “Additional information” heading below. Please contact Mayor Eric MacGilvray as soon as possible, and no later than Friday, April 26, if you know of an issue needing attention that is not on the list.
  4. Please do not disturb stakes or flags that have been placed within the right of way. These markers indicate the location of underground utilities. If markers are removed then the utilities must be re-marked and may be inadvertently damaged, which will delay construction and add to the cost of the project.
  5. Please do not disturb materials within the right of way, such as manholes, castings, and pipes, and please avoid any piping or tubing that extends up from the ground. Again, damage to these items will delay construction and add to the cost of the project.
