A communication dated January 20, 2009 with attachments was received from Robert McNabb, Executive Director, Woburn Housing Authority as follows:

 

Re: Library Park Initiative

 

Dear Mr. Doherty:

 

This is to request that the City Council, with the support of Mayor Thomas McLaughlin, consider a modification of the “Deed of Grant and Reservation” of the parcel known as Lot B Library Park.

 

The current deed contains language that states “This conveyance is subject to a reservation, here in after described, in favor of the Grantor for the purpose of preserving open space for the benefit of the general public”. In addition there are surface restrictions. (see attached)

 

The language as it stands today would imperil any future development on this site.

 

The Authority, through its contracted engineering firm, Weston and Sampson, has received a favorable sub surface report and preliminary foundation recommendations. Additionally a formal survey has been conducted, that includes the Woburn Public Library property and an historical investigation.

 

The next two phases will include site development services and geotechnical services.

 

On behalf of the Board of Commissioners and myself I wish to thank you for your support in this matter.

 

Sincerely, s/Robert McNabb, Executive Director

 

Motion made and 2nd that the MATTER be REFERRED TO COMMITTEE ON MUNICIPAL LANDS, all in favor, 8-0-1 (Gately absent).

Re: Clapp/Goodyear Schools

 

Dear Mr. Doherty:

 

The Woburn Housing Authority’s Board of Commissioners, through this office, are expressing interest in any disposition of the Clapp and/or Goodyear Schools.

 

The Authority would like to go on record as having made formal contact with regard to these two properties for possible future affordable housing needs.

 

If it is possible to take this request into consideration the Authority would greatly appreciate it.

 

Sincerely, s/Robert McNabb, Executive Director

A communication dated January 20, 2009 was received from Robert McNabb, Executive Director, Woburn Housing Authority as follows:

 

Re: Empty Lot

 

Dear Mr. Doherty:

 

This is to request that the City Council, upon support of Mayor Thomas McLaughlin, grant control of the empty lot at the corner of Wade Avenue and Campbell Street to the Woburn Housing Authority.

 

The reason for this is to relieve 59 Campbell Street residents and guests of the parking shortfall at our facility.

 

The Woburn Housing Authority (WHA) would like to investigate any underground utilities or surface requirements and would bear all costs of surfacing, drainage, maintenance and landscaping.

 

Perhaps a long term lease may be of consideration?

 

Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

 

Sincerely, s/Robert McNabb, Executive Director

A copy of a communication dated January 28, 2009 to Mayor Thomas L. McLaughlin from Alderman Darlene Mercer-Bruen and Tom Ferraguto, School Building Committee was received as follows:

 

To: The Honorable Thomas L. McLaughlin

 

Dear Mayor McLaughlin:

 

Thank you for your recent phone call regarding the Goodyear School and Leland Park.  We are glad to see that quick attention is being given to “plan B options” to keep this project moving.

 

At this point however, we want to express our concerns on what appears to be a focus, once again, on only “one” plan.   The idea that is currently being floated has been previously vetted by the council in financial terms, not as an option for a school, but the “fit up” that was discussed then and would have to be discussed now is relatively the same.  It could not only be extremely costly, perhaps as costly as remediation of the Leland Site, but more time consuming hence jeopardizing an already delicate time table.

 

In conjunction with the idea you are currently considering, we respectfully request that the school committee members be prepared to discuss more than one option on February 11t by seriously exploring the use of portable classrooms or alternative temporary class room space with an eye on meeting our March time line.

 

The recent cost estimates for the site “preparation” for Leland Park make it even more imperative that School Committee, the Office of the Mayor and City Council work collectively on determining a workable solution that is cost effective and as importantly, allows for implementation in the 2009 school year so as not to impact our funding from the MSBA.

 

Thank you for your consideration of this matter.  We look forward to seeing you on February 11th.

 

Sincerely, s/Darlene Mercer-Bruen, Alderman, Ward 5

Tom Ferraguto, School Building Committee

A communication dated January 22, 2009 with attachments was received from John E.

Corey, Jr., PE, City Engineer as follows:

 

Subject: Rag Rock Tank – Article 97 Land Transfer

 

The Conservation Commission during their January 15, 2009 meeting, voted to accept a parcel of land adjoining Horn Pond Mountain in exchange for land under the care and custody of the Conservation Commission to be used in the erection or the replacement water storage facility on Rag Rock.

 

A copy of the vote and the applicable plans has been enclosed. This transfer, with the approval of the City Council would result in the following land transfer:

 

  • The City will obtain approximately 2.2 acres of land on Rag Rock, currently under the care and custody of the Conservation Commission for the purposes of erecting a new water storage tank with an access road to Hillside Ave. and appurtenant water mains, security fencing and ancillary water facilities.
  • Easements providing access to the existing storage facility will no longer be needed and they will be extinguished after the existing tank is removed.
  • In return for the 2.2 acre Rag Rock Parcel, the Conservation Commission will receive care and custody over two parcels. The existing tank site comprising approximately 0.5 acres will be transferred following removal of the existing tank, remediation of surface soils and site restoration. The second parcel comprising approximately 3.0 acres is located adjacent to the Woburn Parkway along the Winchester side of Horn Pond Mountain.

 

Following a favorable action by the City Council on the land transfer, the matter will be submitted to EOEEA for their approval and then legislative action will be required by the state to finalize the land transfers.

 

We area available to discuss the matter in detail and answer any questions or comments the Council may have relative to the matter.

 

Motion made and 2nd that the MATTER be REFERRED TO COMMITTEE ON MUNICIPAL LANDS, all in favor, 8-0-1 (Gately absent).

A copy of a communication dated January 7, 2009 with attachment to Steven Paris, Woburn Inspectional Services was received from Jared Tucker, Project Representative and Stephen J. Fautsch, AIA, Architext-of-Record/Principal, 1220 Marshall Street NE, Minneapolis, Minnesota, 55413-1036 as follows:

 

Re: Remodel of Target Store in Woburn – T-1266 Woburn, MA – Stephen J. Fautsch, Architect Comm. No.: 9108.041.00

 

Dear Mr. Paris:

 

Thank you for your telephone call on Monday, 5 January 2009 concerning the proposed revisions of the Target store located at 101 Commerce Way, Woburn, MA. Per our conversation, I am writing to summarize the work that will be done as part of this project.

 

The majority of this work will be within the interior of the building. There will be no building expansion and minimal work to the exterior.

 

Exterior work would include removing the “Greatland” signage on three elevations and moving the “Target” signage to reflect the current Target brand. Exterior painting will be minimal, and will only include areas required to be touched up due to the signage relocation. The entry fascia will be re-painted. Six (6) exterior spherical bollards will be installed in the sidewalk in front of the store. The store will receive a new self-contained compactor to replace the existing unit. The new unit will be installed at the existing location. Additional rooftop equipment will be added to the roof for additional sales floor market cases and walk-in coolers/freezer.

 

Interior work will not affect current exiting and no exit access will be moved, altered or relocated. There will be no work done to the front office area including, but not limited to, employee services, guest restrooms, food service, pharmacy, portrait studio, one hour photo, or guest service. There will be no work done to the core services, including but not limited to water service, maintenance areas, employee restrooms in the stock areas located at the rear of the store. Work on the sales floor will include updating finishes, updating neon on each sales floor interior elevation, and expanding the market area. In addition to Target’s traditional food offerings, Target will be expanding the food assortment to include additional bakery, deli, meat and produce items.

 

Relocation of the jewelry showcase and relocation of the fitting rooms will occur on the sales floor. The rear stock room will have some fixturing updated due to the addition of three (3) walk-in coolers and one (1) walk-in freezer. A Dry Produce/Labeling Room will be added. The Dry Produce/Labeling Room includes a hand washing sink, a single compartment sink, scale labeling devices and storage areas (dry and refrigerated). The single compartment sink will only be used to wash bulk produce, if needed, prior to being stocked on the sales floor. Scale labeling devices will be used to weigh and label all random weight case ready items. This will eliminate the need to weigh items at the point of sale check out lanes.

 

A condensate vacuum pump system will be utilized to remove condensate from the refrigerated coolers and freezers. This room will be located adjacent to the Dray Produce/Labeling Room in the rear stock area.

 

All work will be done under the Massachusetts State Building Code, Seventh Edition.

Two (2) site visits by the Architect will be conducted during construction as well as one (1) site visit each by the Mechanical, Electrical, and Structural Engineers. Any special inspections required will be done per the building code.

 

Please let me know if this scope of work would require City Council approval. If so, I will begin the process immediately. Construction documents are planned to be issued to the City of Woburn, MA for review on 22 January 2009. If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

 

Sincerely, s/Jared Tucker, Project Representative

s/Stephen J. Fautsch, AIA, Architect-of-Record/Principal

 

Motion made and 2nd to suspend the rules for the purposes of hearing from the petitioner, all in favor, 8-0-1 (Gately absent). Appearing for the petitioner was Jerome Rego, Construction Representative for Target Corporation and he stated that there will be no change outside or in the parking lot with the exception of removing the “Greatland” signs from the exterior of the building and the monument sign. Motion made and 2nd to return to the regular order of business, all in favor, 8-0-1 (Gately absent). Motion made and 2nd that adjustment requested by Target Corporation to the floor plan at the Target Store, 101 Commerce Way set forth in a plan entitled “Target – Floor Plan – A111” prepared by Stephen J. Fautsch Architect dated January 2009 be APPROVED, all in favor, 8-0-1 (Gately absent).

A communication dated February 3, 2009 was received from His Honor the Mayor Thomas L. McLaughlin as follows:

 

Dear President Doherty and Distinguished Members of the City Council,

 

Re:      FY 2009 Local Aid Cuts

 

In am pleased to inform you that working in conjunction with Gerald Surette, our City Auditor, we have identified offsets to the approx $726,000 in FY 2009 local aid cuts that were recently announced by the Governor.

 

Approximately $580,000 of this offset will come from reductions that were identified in FY 2009 appropriations. The remaining $146,000 will come from additional unanticipated revenues in our hotel-motel tax revenues.

 

The City of Woburn continues to be in a very strong financial condition to deal with this economic slowdown.  I am sure that FY 2010 will present us with further fiscal challenges. However, I am confident that we will be able to meet these challenges without experiencing a significant impact on local services.

 

Please contact me if you have any question.

 

Sincerely, s/Thomas L. McLaughlin, Mayor
