Yesterday the class visited the "Semester Parcel" in order to visualize the layout of the area. This was incredibly helpful because we were able to see that the property to develop is actually a long strip along Boultier Ave., and then a smaller square along E Fairview Ave. There is a building standing on the strip along Boultier that will most likely need demolishing before development can begin. The age of the building makes it likely that there is asbestos. This will bring additional costs because removal and demolishing a building with asbestos requires expensive procedures. Also we will have to determine what restrictions on the property may exist due to the proximity to housing, churches, and schools.
