Will the demolition have an impact on the air quality of the students attending the Middle School?

The prior EIS prepared on behalf of the Village (discussed above) assessed the potential impacts to air quality that would occur as a result of demolition. The EIS explained that the first phase of construction would include the removal of hazardous substances. The removal would be performed by licensed professionals and all hazardous substances would be removed, transported, and disposed of in accordance with all applicable laws. Removal of this material as the first step of construction would minimize the possibility of these materials becoming airborne during construction.

The EIS also explained that adverse impacts to air quality could be avoided through the implementation of numerous mitigation measures. Those mitigation measures would include implementation of dust control procedures, covering stockpiled soil piles, air monitoring, and response protocols by trained professions.

The Westerman cost estimate provides for abatement of hazardous materials for demolition, adaptive reuse and facadism since it anticipates that this will be required for each of the alternatives being considered for St. Paul’s. Regardless of whether demolition, adaptive reuse, or facadism is pursued for St. Paul’s, the Board of Trustees will ensure that the appropriate actions and mitigation measures are implemented during construction to prevent impact to the Middle School.
