Sysco Noise Complaints - 07/14/09

Email recieved 08/19/09


This is a follow-up to our conversation Monday night regarding progress on a sound barrier at Sysco. As I mentioned, we met with Sysco representatives twice last week, including a meeting with the architect / planner consultant who designed the landscape buffers around the western portions of the Sysco site. We discussed the need for a vegetative sound buffer at the point in closest proximity to the cul-de-sac, essentially from the Innovation Drive curbcut south to the base of the first ComEd tower. A planted barrier provides the most sound absorption and becomes more effective each year. The consultant, Dalip Bammi, sent me this e-mail as a result of our meeting last week:

“ … As I stated, I did discuss your thoughts in addressing the noise issue with Sysco officials yesterday. We are in the process of identifying the location, species and costof tree planting in the suggested area. I will call you, when I return to office onSeptember 1,to share our landscaping concept to assure it meets with your approval.”

As we discussed, physical improvements at Sysco have to be approved from the corporate offices in Texas, but this is being sought. I will let you know as soon as we get a response on the landscaping plan.
