Letters to the Editor: Del Monte truck traffic being addressed

Letters to the Editor
Del Monte warehouse

Dear Editor:

Tim Lewis Communities wishes to respond to Mr. D’Amico’s letter in the Alameda Sun regarding truck activity at the Del Monte warehouse, which we understand has been a nuisance to neighbors.

To clarify, Tim Lewis Communities is not the owner of the Del Monte warehouse; DAMCO leases space from the current owner. Tim Lewis Communities is in contract to purchase the property and currently has a plan before the city to transform the site into an updated mixed-use development with housing, walkable retail and a revitalized waterfront. Our plan will permanently eliminate truck activity and traffic to and from the warehouse.

When we were made aware of increased tractor-trailer activity at Del Monte last week, Tim Lewis Communities worked with the city and DAMCO to help mitigate the noise and congestion. In fact, DAMCO contracted with the Alameda Police Department to monitor activity and calm traffic, and we have heard back from neighbors that the issue is indeed being resolved.

We look forward to being a part of the community and creating new uses for the warehouse that complement the existing residential neighborhood.

Mike O’Hara
Director of Forward Planning
