The 3473 Swallow’s Nest Lane Demolition Project has been delayed due to the additional time required by PG&E to disconnect the gas service to the house. It is likely the demolition will occur in mid-November to early December timeframe. The demolition contractor will provide an updated schedule when he has more certainty from PG&E as to when they will be performing the gas line disconnection.

GEI Consultants will be performing the noise evaluation for SAFCA.
GEI personnel will be coming to the site beginning on Thursday, 09/10 through Monday 09/14
and will limit their access to SAFCA-owned property where they will temporarily stage their
noise monitoring equipment.
The surveying at Swallows Nest was for the relocation of the utilities. The surveying for the property acquisition will be done later. The "Right Of Entry" is good for 6months and stated they would need 2 days for that work. We will be advised when they will be here so we can notify the community.
The paint markings and stakes were used to assist the survey crew in tracking topography limits and the locations of temporary control points. The stakes can be removed and do not denote any utility locations or boundary lines of any kind.
