Preserving Community Ties
It takes more than a collection of buildings to create a neighborhood – it’s the people who bring a community to life. To help Wyvernwood residents transition smoothly to the new development, the site’s owners have created a comprehensive Resident Retention Plan spelling out several commitments to current tenants.
A key commitment included in the plan: current residents will be able to move into brand new, improved apartments in the new project and pay no more in rent than they would have paid for their current, outdated unit.
As another commitment to residents, numerous mitigation measures will be implemented during construction to limit the inconvenience of the building process. All construction equipment will use sound mufflers, and noise-generating work will occur only during daylight hours. No construction will take place on Sundays.
In addition, concrete and other materials salvaged during demolition will be reused as much as possible to limit the amount of new material delivered to the site. Construction areas will be fenced off and regularly swept and cleaned to reduce dust creation, and diesel vehicles will obey California air-quality regulations that forbid excessive idling.
