The Sunnyvale Palo Alto Medical Foundation (PAMF), a Subsidiary of Sutter Health, has demolished the former 301 Old San Francisco Road Building and is preparing the site despite the PAMF Environmental Impact Report (PAMF EIR) CEQA Litigation.

Note the 8′ plywood fence noise barrier. According to the PAMF DEIR, the purpose is to shield adjacent residences from MAJOR noise generating phases of demolition and construction to reach 75dBA on Jarvis Court, exceeding The City of Sunnyvale Noise Ordinance.
The excavation or Shoring Systems will be two levels below grade (25 feet) at the 301 Old San Francisco Sunnyvale PAMF site to accommodate the planned two-level underground parking garage.
Look how close the adjacent home is to the Palo Alto Medical Foundation lot! The construction is estimated to be 28 months and this is the BEST noise reducing mitigation the City of Sunnyvale Council required PAMF to install?
Councilman David Whittum stated that 54 homes in the Sunnyvale Heritage Neighborhood would be affected by PAMF construction noise during the June 23, 2009 Hearing. Whittum suggested that retrofitting the 54 affected homes was the only way to secure compliance with the city’s noise standards.
The Motion was denied by the other CouncilMembers during the hearing.

The Construction Hours Posted are Mon – Fri 7:00am – 6:00 pm, Sat 8:00am – 5:00pm.
