Construction mitigation plan helps lessen impact

Crews working in Ketchum have to abide by construction mitigation regulations that help minimize impacts.

· A general contractor must complete a construction staging permit application and submit it with the building permit.

· The application is reviewed by the Planning, Building and Fire departments. Those departments may impose conditions.

· In the permit application, the contractor has to specify the exact amounts of cut and fill, indicate stockpile areas and describe truck routes. They must control dust, sand and gravel on city streets and they must wash roads to keep them clear.

· Parking areas and material storage areas must be marked on the construction plans. When possible, vehicles have to park on the construction site. Larger projects, ones that require more than 15 vehicles per day, might be required to have workers carpool to the site.
