Work on the Singer Building continues
Our General Contractor (UIP) has tentatively scheduled site utility work for our project at 3300-3310 Rhode Island Ave beginning Friday, May 19th. Below is a basic outline of the site utility work that will have impacts to Perry Street directly to the north of our property. Our overall goal is to minimize any adverse impact to the neighbors – especially on Perry and 33rd Streets.
UIP’s Site Utility Contractor (Busy Ditch) will be on-site beginning Friday, May 19th to mark out their lines and begin working within the site construction fence (primarily along Rhode Island Ave)
On Monday, May 22nd utility work associated with existing and new water lines will commence on Perry Street to the north of our property
Working hours requiring a temporary, partial closure of Perry Street (only the southern half of the street) will be from approximately 9:00am to 3:00pm (Monday through Friday, after/before rush hour traffic). A single drive lane will be maintained on the north side of Perry Street for the duration of the work.
Work duration on Perry Street is estimated at approximately 5 business days (Monday through Friday, weather permitting)
"No Parking” signs will be placed along the south side of Perry Street which would be in effect during daytime hours (8:30am – 3:30pm) from Monday, May 22nd through Friday, May 27th.
Additionally, we will have a neighborhood meeting on Thursday, May 18th at 7pm to answer any questions you have related to the utility site work or the project in general. Council member Shah has arranged for our use of the meeting space in City Hall.
Please submit any questions or comments you have in advance to me at this email address. We found this approach to be particularly efficient at the last neighborhood meeting.
Thanks for your attention.

As a long-time resident of Mount Rainier and a homeowner, it is important to me that municipal government be inclusive of all of its residents. It is equally important that information be communicated through all possible channel so that residents can get involved. It is also important for residents to volunteer and serve on committees, commissions, boards and task forces. I truly believe that municipal government is the government closes to the people, and as such should be easily accessible. This BLOG is another effort to reach out to the residents of Mount Rainier.
