11-Lot Conservation Development Approved in Middletown

By February 27, 2020 March 3rd, 2020 Engineering News

Conservation Development MiddletownBrennan Construction & Restoration has teamed with Crossman Engineering, DiPrete Engineering, and attorney Bob Silva to design and build a new conservation development on Mitchell’s Lane in Middletown known as Stone Bridge Farm.

Conceptual work for this property has been ongoing for many years. Following acceptable soil testing conducted with the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (RIDEM) to support a community septic system in 2017, the site was eventually approved by the Middletown Planning Board as an 11-lot conservation subdivision with a 1,000’ cul de sac roadway.

DiPrete Engineering’s design for the development included a proposed public roadway, pumped community septic system, and closed drainage system and water quality practices. The design was permitted through the RIDEM Wetlands and OWTS Programs. The team also received a Wetlands Insignificant Alteration Permit and OWTS Construction Permit.

“A lot of hard work has gone into this project,” said Kevin DeMers, Senior Project Engineer at DiPrete Engineering. “This was an extremely detailed design, and a thorough vetting by the town, staff, and professional team members.”

Following state approvals, the Town Preliminary Plan process commenced, and after thorough coordination with the town’s staff and peer reviewer as well as concerned abutters, the Planning Board approved the preliminary plan in late summer 2019. The administrative final approval is currently pending.
