Jorge Pereira, PLS and Principal of Redniss & Mead will be a returning presenter and panel member at the Environmental Professionals’ Organization of Connecticut repeat seminar, “Environmental Land Use Restrictions (ELUR) – Advanced Case Studies” on October 15, 2015.
Mr. Pereira will be discussing the surveyor’s roll in preparing a survey which is an element of the application process and will ultimately be filed on the land records. He will also be discussing CTDEEP’s survey requirements, reviewing their Survey Submittal Check List, and providing examples.
This seminar was developed by members of the Environmental Professionals’ Organization of Connecticut (EPOC) and staff from the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (CTDEEP). During this four hour seminar, presenters and panel members will use case studies to review:
- Types and applicability of various forms of ELURs.
- Legal issues including: survey requirements; easement evaluations; rights of way including utility issues; adverse possession prescriptive versus non-prescriptive easements; subordination agreements; and waivers of subordination.
- Environmental Land Use Restriction components: Decision Document, determining depths of allowable soil disturbance, engineered controls, overlapping subject areas, A-2 survey.
- Planning for an ELUR: start (remediation & development) with the end in mind. The ELUR team approach.
- CTDEEP’s review of the Application for Environmental Land Use Restriction – what does CTDEEP need to complete the review of an ELUR?
- Temporary conditional release of an ELUR & Temporary Release in Part – processes timing and examples.
- Wrap-up – Use of authorized signatures, overview of 1st year of the new ELUR forms (trends, stats and common pitfalls).
Information will be provided through panel discussions and presentations of two case studies used to illustrate the information outlined above. Selected case studies include 845 Canal Street, a circa 1960 warehouse type building rehabilitated into office & commercial spaces in the Harbor Point area of Stamford and the historic Yale & Towne Manufacturing site redeveloped into luxury condominium building in the Harbor Point area of Stamford. Representatives of the developer will present the developer perspective for site reuse and ELUR planning and implementation.
