Cowell Smokestack Project Officially Starts!

After more than 6 years of research, work and decision making, the Cowell Smokestack Demolition & Restoration Project was officially begun this week. After months of work, interviewing and hiring contractors and working with the City of Concord, the project was officially kicked off this week through the following activities:
  • Final plans and schedule submitted by the contractor and approved by CHOA
  • Permits obtained from the City of Concord after meeting more tan 50 conditions of approval
  • Project Kickoff meeting held with all project participants on June 5th
  • The Official "Notice to Proceed" was given by CHOA to Evans Brothers, Inc.
Mark Weinmann, Project Manager for the association, had this to say on the start of the project, "This is a momentous occasion months and years in the making. None of this would have been possible with out the dedication of our Smokestack Committee Volunteers, our BOD, our management partner, Swinerton and the City of Concord. While we are all sad to see the Smokestack go, we can now proceed with what is best for the entire community.

This website will keep the community informed with the latest information and developments. On the left hand side of the page you can find the latest announcements, links to information and photos, and more.

Recently, several community meetings were held to pass on the approach and details of the project. The presentation can be accessed here:
