Welcome back from Spring Break! The following work was accomplished last week:
- Water line to the existing building from Sidney Avenue has been istalled, tested, flushed and cleaned. Final connection is scheduled to be made on Saturday, April 25th.

- Electrical and communications conduits from Flatbush Ave have been installed to the existing building
- First 2 rows of under drains for the new building have been installed
- New storm piping from Oakwood Ave has been installed onto the site
- Top soil from the north field has been stripped and hauled from the site
- Sanitary line from Flatbush Ave to the construction trailer has been installed
- Permanent patches have been made for previous utility trenching work on Sidney and Flatbush Aves
- Concrete subcontractor has mobilized material and equipment on site and a material lay down area has been established for related materials
Work anticipated for the next week:
- Excavations for foundations will begin
- Rebar and anchor bolts for the concrete work will be delivered to the site
- Foundation form work and rebar installation will begin on building perimiter frost walls
- Storm water piping installation will continue to connect building under drains
- Utility poles will be set off Flatbush Ave for electrical power and communications to the existing building and to the construction trailer
At the PTO meeting on Wednesday, April 8th several concerns were raised and the following actions have been initiated:
Construction Vehicles Traveling Through Neighborhood:
- Fusco is now providing "720 Flatbush Avenue" as the delivery address for the project and a route map was sent to all subcontractors.
- Town Engineer has provided permission to install "No Charter Oak Construction Traffic" signs on Oakwood Ave, Price Blvd, and Sidney Ave. Fusco will create and install the signs.
Zoning Office provided permission for the installation of a 4-foot fence to enclose the playground area. An access gate for pedestrians will be provided on the south side to permit access from Sterling Field.
Site Lines at Intersection of Sidney and Oakwood Avenues:
Town Engineer evaluated the situation on Friday April 10th and has provided direction to improve the site lines. Fusco will implement.
Change Sidney Ave to One Way to Alleviate Traffic Congestion:
Town Engineer has evaluated this request and feels it is not warranted at this time. He recommends additional education and supervision to help the situation.
As always, if you have a concern, please get in touch with Bob Palmer, the project manager or the project superintendent.
