How will developers maintain public access to the site during construction?

During pre-development and redevelopment activities on site, Trinity will work closely with its selected general contractor to create a plan to secure the site and maintain public access to open space. Trinity’s construction plan will be reviewed by the Town during as part of the regular permitting process. Strategies that have been utilized on previous Trinity developments include appropriate construction fencing, on-site security personnel during peak and non-peak hours, consistent and visible signage to reflect ongoing work, careful storage and security of materials and equipment used during construction, and constant communication with adjacent neighbors and the Town on matters such as driving routes and scheduled hours of work to mitigate disturbance to abutting residents.
