Approved Clean Diesel and Conduct of Construction GNA

Comments Off

At the November 18th NWDA Board meeting, the “CE John and NWDA Clean Diesel and Conduct of Construction Good Neighbor Agreement: Conway Master Plan” was unanimously approved by the Board of Directors. The agreement is: final draft GNA 5761688_8; with two attached exhibits:

Conduct of Construction Exhibit C – Clean Diesel 10-24-13;

Conduct of Construction Exhibit D BMPs 11 15 13 – tom’s edits

This agreement addresses the following aspects of construction of the Con-way Master Planned properties:

  1. Diesel Emissions Reduction Management
  2. Access Management
  3. Traffic Management
  4. Safety, Security and Construction Site Management

The agreement was originally to be with Con-way, through this arrangement places the term of the agreement in the hands of Con-way’s master developer who will own and manage the projects as they unfold. Thomas DiChiara, Senior Vice President of Development for CE John attended the meeting and expressed the firm’s commitment to clean and well-managed projects in the Northwest district. CE John has already constructed major projects in the neighborhood including the Benevento, the Ida Fuller and Sawyer’s Row. All have received positive feedback from the NWDA’s Planning Committee.

While Exhibit D, above, is in final form, Exhibit C is subject to adjustment as it is employed for the first project, as that technical scoring framework is new and untested.

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality that supported this effort is awaiting final word on a Federal Highway grant that would assist with the retrofit of construction equipment to meet current EPA clean diesel standards.

NWDA has been led in this effort by Board member, Kathy Sharp, and Air Quality Committee Chair, Sharon Genasci, with further support from Board President Phil Selinger and environmental attorney, David Paul. DEQ also provided valued support.

The NWDA is appreciative of the voluntary engagement of both Con-way and CE John in the preparation of this draft agreement. Much work remains to apply the agreement to the first Con-way Master Plan property, Block 296, which will include a New Seasons grocery store. That project is scheduled to break ground in early 2014.
