Town of Scriba, New York
Our design team provided site development design services for this 10-acre land development project. The project is an independent-living retirement community consisting of 18 residential duplexes and a community center.
Complete site design services, from the local permitting process approval to final construction plan development, were provided. The project included close to 1300 linear feet of new road layout, water and sewer main design, stormwater drainage, and site grading. Design criteria included the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements; driveways and the walking path were graded to accommodate wheelchair accessibility.
The development was also designed to blend with the natural setting. Red Wine Creek, a tributary to Lake Ontario, runs along the property. Special consideration was required in order to protect the water quality of the creek. To incorporate the creek into the development, a walking path was integrated into the design plans to provide recreational opportunities.
Final design plans were completed in two months and approvals from local government agencies were obtained without delay. Construction began in January 1999; site work (utility installation and grading) was completed in the summer of 1999.
