Subject:  859 Main Street –Alzheimer’s Care Facility Special Permit                Traffic Report Dated November 2010           Revised Table 4.

                                   

A revised Table 4. Appurtenant to the above referenced traffic study was submitted to this office in response to our memorandum of December 14, 2010.

 

The revised Table depicts the level of service for each signalized intersection for the 2015 Build Option including background traffic growth and the Alzheimer’s Unit prior to the other projects being occupied. Under this scenario, there is minimal traffic impact and there would be no reduction in the level of service at either School St. and Main St. or Main St. at Alfred St. and Elm St.

 

On the basis of the foregoing, we concur with the conclusions of the traffic study that the proposed facility in itself will have minimal traffic impacts on the surrounding area. This cannot be said for the project in conjunction with other projects that may come forth in the future and these projects would have to be evaluated at the time they are submitted.

 

I trust the foregoing information suffices for your current needs. Should you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact this office.

 

A communication dated December 20, 2010 was received from John E. Corey, Jr., PE, City Engineer as follows:

 

Subject:  859 Main Street –Alzheimer’s Care Facility Special Permit – Mitigation Costs

                                                           

The writer has reviewed submitted costs for the above referenced facility as forwarded to this office by the applicant’s legal counsel.

 

The estimated site development cost is $1,700,000.00 and at three percent the resulting mitigation fee would be $51,000.00. The applicant has indicated that a fifteen foot strip of land along the frontage of Main Street will be conveyed to the City of Woburn for widening purposes. According to the applicant’s legal counsel, the value of this land is $35,700.00. On this basis, the mitigation fee proposed by the applicant would be $15,000.00.

 

At this time, we have no formal plan or written description of the proposed easement for roadway purposes.

 

I trust the foregoing information suffices for your current needs. Should you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact this office.

A communication dated December 17, 2010 with attachment was received from Woburn Traffic Commission as follows:

 

Re: City-wide Trucking Study

 

The Woburn Traffic Commission reviewed the possibility of conducting a city-wide trucking study. It was determined that the assistance of an outside consultant would be necessary to complete the review. The Traffic Commission secured an estimate from the city’s traffic consultant Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. for such a report. The report will identify preferred truck routes, evaluate the city street system, review land use to identify major truck origins/destinations, develop recommended/preferred truck routes, and develop a procedure for processing truck restriction requests. The final report would be submitted to the Massachusetts Department of Transportation as a comprehensive plan for approval.

 

A copy of the estimate from VHB of approximately $25,000.00 is attached for review by

the City Council. If this is a matter that the City Council wants to pursue, an appropriation of such amount would be required to do so.

 

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

 

s/William C. Campbell, City Clerk
