The purpose of the Scoping Session is to provide oral comments to assist the Planning Department in determining the scope and content of the Environmental Impact Report for the project. The proposed 316 unit residential and commercial complex at 1601 Mariposa will have widespread impacts in the neighborhood, particularly in the context of many other large projects that are being considered in the area. The Eastern Neighborhoods EIR did not specifically consider, analyze or mitigate many of the impacts of a project of this scale at the 1601 Mariposa site, nor did it anticipate the cumulative impacts of multiple large projects on traffic, parking, transit, open space, changes in land use and impact on neighborhood character.
1601 Mariposa Update
Workers will be digging trenches for building footings between 2/12/18 and 4/30/18. This will generate approximately 3000 cubic yards of lead-contaminated soil, with approximately 150 trucks entering and exiting the site on 18th Street to off-haul the soil.
Required safety measures include:
• Controlling dust by spraying water on exposed soil
• Cleaning trucks and wheels of soil and mud before leaving site
• Following specific transportation routes
• Stopping excavation when it's windy
• Washing streets and sidewalks regularly
