Wendi Mannerow, Water/Wastewater Engineer is requesting an exemption to the City's Noise By-law to allow the installation of a new sanitary sewermain on Loach's Road from Regent Street to Windle Drive from October 9, 2013 to November 9, 2013.
Completing the above work during overnight hours would reduce the impacts on vehicular and pedestrian traffic. There are two (2) schools, two (2) hotels, several commercial buildings, an apartment building and a large residential neighbourhood that utilize this roadway for access. The work would be significantly expedited if allowed to occur during the night, when the traffic interruptions are minimal.
The anticipated impacts on the neighbourhood that can be expected from the night work are as follows:
It is recommended that Council approve the exemption for the period requested. The exemption may be withdrawn at any time should any serious complaints occur.
This request has been circulated to Councillor Frances Caldarelli; City of Greater Sudbury Roads and Transportation Services; City of Greater Sudbury Building Services; City of Greater Sudbury Compliance and Enforcement Services; Greater Sudbury Police Services; and City of Greater Sudbury Fire Services. No concerns have been received.
