MRA is currently providing multi-phase planning support, civil engineering, landscape architecture, and surveying for a 2,531-unit Residential Planned Community (RPC), 18-hole Championship Golf Course, and 460,170-SF Town Center Commercial district centered around Betts Pond. The design for the 664-acre site implemented innovative LID elements into the design, transforming stormwater management facilities into amenities / focal points for the project, thereby enhancing water quality and improving the aesthetics of the design. The project includes planning and design of six monumental entrances, four separate community centers, a golf clubhouse facility, miles of sidewalks and multi-modal paths, and included extensive areas of pavers and architectural concrete. In many respects, the project is like “designing an entire small Town or Municipality” with all of the associated infrastructure.
