This will enable us to carry out our environmental due diligence remedial investigation.

Summary (Background)

Several years ago, Ecology chose our Hillyard Integrated Planning Grant proposal to award. Within days of telling us we were awarded, Ecology lost its funding for its Brownfield grants. Consequently, that left a large hole in the funding strategy we had put together for the Yard. When Ecology's 2018 capital budget passed, they let us know our project was still the first in line for funding. This consultant contract implements that prospect. Fiscal Impact Grant related?

Sincerely, Derek Forseth, P.E. Chief Executive Officer Enclosures[s] H i l l y a r d I n t e g r a t e d P l a n n i n g S e r v i c e s R F P A E 2 0 0 - 1 8 2018 Alta Science and Engineering, Inc. Page 1 Section 2 Technical Proposal This section provides the approach and methodology as requested in the RFP. The Tasks are presented in the order outlined in the RFP to facilitate the City of Spokane (City) proposal evaluation. Alta and MFA teamed to provide the City with tailored expertise specific to the needs of this project. Our team leverages the best-of-the-best technical skills from two firms and puts one of the most experienced Brownfield Project Managers at the helm of the team. Alta is the prime contractor and will manage the project. In a technical capacity, Alta will focus on the Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study (RI/FS). MFA will focus on Planning and Civil Engineering. 2.1 Project Approach/Methodology The City of Spokane and Northeast Public Development Authority (NEPDA) have made great progress in their shared effort to revitalize the Hillyard industrial area (The YARD). They have conducted a series of studies and plans to understand the challenges to redevelopment in The YARD and to identify actions to achieve the vision articulated in the NEPDA s 2012 Strategic Plan: The YARD will be home to an array of commercial and industrial businesses, providing quality employment and economic opportunity to residents in the region, and quality housing for area workers. The City s road maintenance facility, referred to as The Ranch, was identified in The YARD Master Redevelopment as a Catalyst site for redevelopment. The property presents an opportunity for economic development through construction of buildings to support businesses as well as the potential to create a regional stormwater facility to address the lack of infrastructure that constrains development throughout The YARD. The Ranch property also has the potential to serve as a valuable asset to generate revenue to support the NEPDA and City s revitalization efforts. In order to support any redevelopment of the Ranch, suspected environmental impacts will need to be remediated. To facilitated cleanup and redevelopment, the City has designated the Ranch as a Brownfield Redevelopment Opportunity Zone. The Integrated Planning Grant provides resources to address the economic, infrastructure, and environmental issues associated with the Ranch . This project will be a key transition from planning to implementation of cleanup and redevelopment of the Ranch and surrounding properties. Our approach to conducting the scope of work in the Integrated Planning Grant will be based on the following principles: Define Path to Environmental Regulatory Closure. The remedial investigation and feasibility study will define the environmental concerns with the Ranch property and identify cost-effective solutions to remediate the site in coordination with redevelopment.

Leverage Partnerships. The NEPDA board and local businesses and real estate professionals have been very involved and invested in the success of redevelopment in the YARD. These partners will be key players in implementing the actions developed in the integrated plan. The productivity and effectiveness of these partners can be maximized through providing clear expectations, concise and thorough briefing materials, and adroit facilitation that frames questions and directs discussion in a productive way.

This project should build on and avoid repeating this previous work to make the most progress possible. Position the City for implementation. The environmental and engineering tasks of the Integrated Planning Grant will prepare the property to move to implementation of cleanup and reuse. The technical studies of the project should be accompanied by a funding and phasing strategy that supports cleanup and reuse. Target engagement with the community. The YARD is an industrial area and most of the stakeholders are professionals who are busy running their businesses. The City and NEPDA have developed effective strategies to engaging property and business owners. The community outreach effort in this project should learn from those strategies and utilize proven methods to reach this unique group of stakeholders.

Based on our experience with prior Integrated Planning Grants, we have prepared a work plan that conducts multiple tasks in parallel. (see Project Schedule, Section 2.3). This reduces the likelihood of rework and ensures that tasks fit together seamlessly in the final product. Our proposed sequencing of the tasks will drive collaboration between the Planners and Engineering team members improving the outcomes.

Review of Previous Work/Site History Review/Preliminary Conceptual Site Model Field Investigation Conceptual Site Model Cleanup Standards Summary Report

Upon review of the Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA; MFA, 2014) and any other available Site historical information, Alta will develop the preliminary conceptual site model (CSM). The CSM will discuss contaminant occurrence, release, fate and transport, exposure pathways, and potential receptors. Site-specific risks, hazards, and concerns based on the described contamination will be addressed in light of local hydrology/hydrogeology, current and future Site usage, and future receptors. Alta will develop the RI/FS Work Plan and Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP) to evaluate the preliminary CSM. The Work Plan and QAPP will be submitted to Ecology for review and comment, and will be revised if necessary for agency approval. Upon approval, Alta will coordinate the field investigation with the City, Ecology, and property owners.

The GPR survey will be conducted to detect the presence of USTs, identify any other underground

H i l l y a r d I n t e g r a t e d P l a n n i n g S e r v i c e s R F P A E 2 0 0 - 1 8 2018 Alta Science and Engineering, Inc. Page 3 structures, and locate the drywells referenced in the Phase I ESA. There may be a heating oil UST associated with the former residence in the southwest corner of the Site. Geotechnical borings or test pits will be required for the stormwater engineering analysis/design. The GPR survey will also inform the radio frequency (RF) approach used to identify unmarked underground utilities prior to boring/excavation activity. Similarly, in addition to aiding the engineering design, the geotechnical investigation will allow characterization of the subsurface and assist in directing opportunistic collection of groundwater samples in the unlikely event groundwater is encountered. If stormwater is present during the field investigation, opportunistic samples can be collected. Analytical parameters for opportunistic water samples will be determined at the time of collection based on proximity to Site sources of contamination. Alta suggests the City consider a topographic/LiDAR survey of the Site to generate a topographic base map and high resolution photogrammetric imagery to aid in sampling design, engineering design, site analysis and planning, and public meeting graphics material. A field investigation is required to fully understand the Site and to develop a CSM. In order to characterize the nature and extent of contamination, the field investigation will likely involve the following components: topographic/LiDAR survey, a geophysical survey, environmental sampling, and geotechnical borings or test pits as required in Task 2 Site Analysis (Section Environmental sampling will consist of soil sampling and opportunistic collection of any groundwater or stormwater encountered during field activities. Based on the previous investigation and the RFP, suspected constituents of concern (COCs) for this Site are: polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), non-halogenated solvents, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE), gasoline- and diesel-range petroleum hydrocarbons (as detected by methods NWTPH-Gx and Dx), and metals (i.e., aluminum, copper, iron, lead, and zinc, etc.). While specifics of the sampling plan will be finalized upon coordination with the City and Ecology, samples may be collected from the following locations (referencing Figure 2 of the Phase I ESA): Grid soil sampling of exposed surface soils in the bulk asphalt storage area to be analyzed for PAHs, NWTPH, and lead. Approximately four exploratory test pits from asphalt piles in the bulk asphalt storage area with collection of two samples per pit to be analyzed for PAHs, NWTPH, and lead. Discrete soil samples from each of the two drainage pits in the northern portion of the Site to be analyzed for PAHs, NWTPH, and lead.

Page 4 Conceptual Site Model (CSM) The Team will develop the preliminary CSM to drive the RI approach collaboratively with Ecology and the City to ensure buy-in. The CSM will evolve as needed based upon the analytical results of the field investigation. The revised CSM will inform the cleanup standards for the Site. Cleanup Standards Appropriate MTCA cleanup levels will be proposed for the Site based on the risks and exposure pathways identified in the CSM to be consistent with future plans for the Site. If mixed MTCA cleanup levels are proposed, rationale will be given to justify the decision. A Terrestrial Ecological Evaluation (TEE) will be conducted to justify proposed cleanup levels, unless the Site qualifies for an exclusion under WAC 173-340-7491. RI Summary Report The City will receive a report that puts the current site conditions into full context. The report will summarize the Site history and usage, previous investigations, the RI field investigation, and analytical results. The report will update the CSM based on the results of the field investigation. COCs that exceed proposed cleanup levels will be identified and benchmarked against cleanup levels providing the City with a resource for discussion cleanup needs with stakeholders. Recommendations in the summary report will include a list of potential cleanup actions to be evaluated in the FS and any recommended interim actions or institutional controls to limit risk and exposure prior to initiation of the cleanup process.

The City and NEPDA have developed relationships with local businesses and property owners. The City is on the front line of community engagement every day. Our job is to arm you with accurate technical information and provide our counsel as Brownfields experts. The Hillyard project is a tremendous opportunity to strengthen community engagement, and perhaps more importantly, earn a deeper level trust from the community by delivering an excellent product. Community engagement activities will continue to expand those efforts and utilize approaches that have proven to be effective in this community. As part of the project, we will prepare a community involvement plan in collaboration with City staff. The community involvement plan is likely to include:

Regular interfacings with the NEPDA board to share information and solicit their input and guidance as representatives of public and private parties in The Yard.

What is the economic benefit of a regional stormwater system? Using a pro forma model, the Team will evaluate the effect on development economics that a regional or distributed stormwater system has on a prototypical site in The Yard rather than meeting standard on-site stormwater quantity management requirements. This information will be useful to the City in evaluating an appropriate fee structure for a regional stormwater system and the impact it may have on encouraging new development. This analysis will also educate land owners and developers of the potential benefits of a regional stormwater system on property in The YARD.

2.2.3 Task 3: Engineering Design The focus of this task is to prepare design documents and cost estimates for stormwater management strategies that align to the long-term reuse vision for the site. The lack of stormwater infrastructure in The YARD is a development constraint. The relatively small size of most properties in the YARD is further constrained by requirements to manage stormwater on site. The Redevelopment Master Plan identified development of off-site stormwater management facilities as a key project priority to support economic development. This task will involve the following steps:

2.2.4 Task 4: Feasibility Study The Feasibility Study sets the ultimate direction for future site use. Task 4 is an important part of the project because this is the point in the project where certain ideas are left to die, and viable alternatives come to life. The cleanup alternatives evaluated in the FS will be informed by the site redevelopment planning to allow for consideration of synergies between remediation and redevelopment. Alta will perform a FS according to the requirements in WAC 173-340-350 to develop and evaluate cleanup action alternatives in order to enable selection of the optimal cleanup action. The FS process will be performed objectively and will not favor preconceived remedies. This FS will include the following:

3.1.1 Project Team Structure/Internal Controls Figure 1 illustrates the simple structural approach of our team. The Alta Team provides the City with three key technical staff with direct long-term experience with the Hillyard project. These are the people you will work with most during the project. All bring decades of related experience and specific knowledge of the project as well as relationships with the City, Ecology, and other stakeholders. John Means spent almost a decade running the Brownfields program for Ecology prior to joining Alta more than 4 years ago. While at Ecology, John developed the Integrated Planning Grant (IPG) program that is funding this project and oversaw the completion of more than 24 IPG projects. John will serve as the Project Manager and primary contact. John knows the program, knows the people, and knows the path to success for IPG projects. While at Alta, John supported the City with the grant application for this project. He knows the grant inside and out. John worked shoulder to shoulder with Michael Stringer of MFA for more than a decade on similar IPG projects. Michael Stringer previously worked on the The YARD Redevelopment Master Plan and brings a strong understanding of the Hillyard area history. His knowledge of the economic struggle after the closure of the railyard along with the development opportunities presented by the construction of the North Spokane Corridor will provide valuable during the planning and outreach phases of this project. Michael has developed trust with the local stakeholders that translates to effective public engagement and communication. Kyle Cotten will continue to bring continuity to the stormwater understanding and linkage to landuse planning for the area. Bernard (BJ) Kronschnabel brings a local understanding of MTCA and strong working relationship with local Ecology staff and the City to the RI/FS component of this project. BJ is H i l l y a r d I n t e g r a t e d P l a n n i n g S e r v i c e s R F P A E 2 0 0 - 1 8 2018 Alta Science and Engineering, Inc.

team selected with the direct Hillyard experience, background knowledge, and IPG process understanding,

Well established working relationships needed with stakeholders for efficient and effective completion of tasks, and The personal commitment of our owners and principals to ensure you have the highest level of responsiveness and expertise available for this project at all times. 3.1.2 Scope, Budget, and Schedule Control Effective control of a project's scope, schedule, and budget is fundamental to achieving success. Understanding and managing the interrelationship of these three elements helps control costs and avoid delays. Alta organizes tasks, manages the level of effort, develops and monitors a critical-path schedule, and compares actual costs to planned costs at key milestones. Our accounting/project management tools and software provide real-time critical budget and schedule information to project managers and clients. Alta provides Earned-Value project reporting on a monthly basis as a method of measuring performance and progress. Alta s size also allows for responsiveness and flexibility with staff and resources that translates into effective budget and schedule management. In addition, Alta and MFA have more than 8 years of experience working together and our systems are already set up for efficient invoicing and tracking of our prime and sub-contractor relationship.

Tagged Passions:budget, performance, manager, information technology, and Information Technology

3.1.3 Communication Effective communication with the City, sub-contractors, and stakeholders is the priority management objective. Alta s communication plan is designed to keep everyone on the project team current and informed. Project kickoff meetings will set the stage for each task. Written project management plans with the scope, schedule, and budget will be provided to all team members. Communication will occur as face-to-face meetings, regular phone calls, project status meetings, and email correspondence. Schedules will be prepared in Gantt chart format for simple tracking. The City should expect regular reporting from us. Invoices will have detailed supporting information with Earned-Value reporting. Deviations in scope will be discussed with the City Project Manager for authorization prior to performing the work to avoid any contract issues. John Means, will be responsible for working directly with the City and will be responsible for overall contract success. Susan Spalinger will serve as Principal-in-Charge and be responsible for Quality Control. Jon Munkers, an Alta Principal, will assume a role of Assistant Program Manager and be John s backup, if necessary.

3.1.4 Cost Estimating Cost estimating requires experience and knowledge of the local environment. Textbook values and RS Means reference guides with Engineering News Records CCI indexes are often insufficiently accurate for this type of work. There is no substitute for having the volume of cost estimating experience and resources our team provides. Alta s approach to cost estimating begins with our Program Manager working directly with the City in an open and transparent process. Estimated project costs are developed using a clearly identified scope of work. John will work with the technical team in each phase of the project. The Team will compile and analyze data on all of the factors that can influence project costs, such as materials, labor, location, laboratories and other sub-contractors, and special equipment requirements, including computer hardware and software. Risks are identified for uncertainties so appropriate contingencies can be presented. Alta has a solid track record of estimating construction costs for engineering projects. In looking at 12 recent projects that ranged in size from 12,000 to 2,200,000, the standard deviation of Alta s estimate from the average winning bid came within 0.98. Our estimate on one noteworthy project was within 351 of the contractor s bid, resulting in our client thanking us for a high degree of competency in our cost estimating.

3.1.5 Quality Control Processes for Plans, Specifications, and Construction

Tagged Passions:construction

All deliverables undergo a rigorous Quality Control (QC) review. Principals and Subject Matter Experts (SME) review all reports and major design packages in order to reduce risk. Fundamentally, we believe it is essential to start by having the right people assigned to the job, and the QC process helps to polish the final result. Alta s engineering designs are developed under the Responsible Charge of licensed Professional Engineers. We achieve Quality Assurance through standard processes and guidelines, including Drafting Standards, Cost Estimating Templates, and Standardized Support Technology, including AutoCAD Civil 3D. We streamline the development of QC plans by leveraging templates and web-based access to contract management procedures; QC is achieved through peer-reviews and internal project reviews. The objectives of our QC reviews are to ensure projects are completed efficiently and that the City s risks are minimized. Our senior personnel systematically review all calculations, the basis for design documents, and design packages (i.e., Plan, Specification, and Estimate [PS E] process). Additionally, one effective QC measure that Alta commonly uses is to call upon experts for independent project reviews. We are able to draw from our team s panel of SMEs for uniquely sophisticated and innovative designs. All calculations are back-checked by an equally competent peer. Design drawings are checked using Alta s drawing review checklist that includes accuracy and precision metrics. Our
