Work at Spaulding scheduled for August 2nd

I wanted to pass along a correspondence that I had with our new project manager for Spaulding Ranch.

Here is that excerpt from Trevor Kesner

I wanted to reach out and let you, and the neighborhood association know about this upcoming project, because I am certain folks will notice workers on-site. It is important to convey to everyone that the contractor is a licensed and bonded Asbestos mitigation specialist, and there is absolutely no health risk to neighbors of Spaulding Ranch. It is also very important to let folks know that the hazardous materials being removed have no historic value, and will not affect, nor alter any of the original, historic features of the home or any ancillary buildings.
