Work has begun to construct a new retail building at 18764 Cox Avenue and is expected to be completed in October 2022. Construction can occur Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Efforts will be made to minimize noise and disruptions.
This week, work began in the parking lot to prepare for laying the foundation of the new building. In the coming days, heavy machinery and trucks will be required to remove asphalt. There will also be minor work in the street as a sewer lateral is relocated. While lanes will be temporarily closed, the road will remain open the entire time.
Questions or concerns about construction can be directed to Vaughn Campilli, Senior Superintendent Tilton Pacific, at 916.824.5757.
Soil Vapor Contamination & Corrective Action Work Plan
Environmental investigations at Quito Village Shopping Center have identified elevated levels of tetrachloroethene (PCE), benzene, and ethylbenzene in soil vapor (the air space between the individual soil grains) beneath the shopping center. The contamination can be attributed to past operations of the former Quito Dry Cleaners and a former gas station.
A Notice of Opportunity for Public Comment has been issued inviting the public to review the Corrective Action Work Plan and other related documents, then submit written comments to DEH by April 8, 2022 using the online Site Mitigation Program’s Public Comment Form.
Work will be performed by the current site owner’s environmental consultant and regulated by the DEH. The City of Saratoga has no authority over the site assessment and remediation; however, given community concern about the topic, the City is working in cooperation with the DEH to keep residents updated.
