Since Harris Teeter is scheduled to soon begin destruction of its Ghent store, Al Lentz, its vice president, store development, responded to an earlier inquiry from Ghent Square residents, see below. — Concerned Ghent Square residents were kind enough to share this letter with the Ghent Neighborhood League .
From Mr. Lentz’s letter:
“While we will make every effort possible to develop programs and control the work environment, please understand that situations arise where people or issues fall out of well development processes and systems. We will provide you with methods to alert Harris Teeter when this happens. Our intentions are to improve the quality of life in your community, not adversely affect it.
We will provide a forum where our project manager can visit with you to share concerns. You will see this information below.
Construction concerns
The Harris Teeter Construction Representative is Michael Burdette. His cell phone is (704) 957-0689. Michael will not be on the site every day. Once we get a general contractor assigned, we will give you the project superintendent’s contact information. This will be in late summer probably.
Michael Burdette will determine the construction work days and hours. He has flexibility here.
Michael Burdette will develop programs to keep the streets free of construction materials. He will develop this program prior to the start of construction.
We will provide adequate parking for our construction people either on site or at designated areas approved by all concerned.
Construction workers will not park in the private Ghent neighborhood.
Construction workers will be instructed not to eat on the lawns of private residents.
Our construction company will inform all employees to remain on site during breaks.
Store operations
Michal Burdette will provide you with store management contact information.
Mac Strain is Harris Teeter’s Facilities Manager. His Cell phone is (919) 593-0574. Mac is responsible for all parking lot and building maintenance. Once the store is open, we will provide you a specific contact who lives in the area.
We understand your comments about late night operation of the parking vacuum system and will not do this until after 7:00 am.
We understand noise concerns and will police all offensive behavior.
We will develop measures for pest control.
Site concerns
The landscaping plan has been submitted to the City and approved. I think that the issue that you have brought up is being addressed concerning low shrubs to block headlights from automobiles and taller trees to block parking lot lights. All parking lot lights are directed downward with efforts to avoid neighbors having to look at the “bulbs”.
Mac Strain is responsible for landscape maintenance. A full service landscaping contract will be signed with high expectations.
Again, we will make every effort to always do the right thing. If for any reason you see that my commitments are not being realized, I would expect and appreciate you contacting me.
Best Regards, Al Lentz, Vice President Store Development, Harris Teeter, alentz@harristeeter.com”br>
