Millbrook Marsh Nature Center & Parking Lot
Centre Region Parks & Recreation, Millbrook Marsh Nature Center, State College, Centre County, PA
Stahl Sheaffer provided land development and surveying services on several projects for the 12-acre Millbrook Marsh Nature Center.
The Welcome Center project required updated surveying to complete a site and utility plan for a proposed hike/bike pedestrian path, and utility connections for the continued development of the Nature Center. Stahl Sheaffer completed the schematic site plan and required documentation for a zoning variance application to College Township.
Stahl Sheaffer previously provided site engineering, topographic survey, and land development plan submissions for parking accommodations in 2013. This project included the construction of a parking lot, access drives, and related stormwater, zoning, and subdivision and land development ordinances. A DEP NPDES permit and an Erosion & Sedimentation Control plan were also required. Stahl Sheaffer provided construction administration services.
Additionally, Stahl Sheaffer provided full construction stakeout for this project, including parking areas, rain gardens, and stormwater facilities. During construction, a deeper than anticipated depth of topsoil was encountered. Stahl Sheaffer quickly revised the plans as construction continued without interruption. The project was successfully completed prior to several scheduled events at the Nature Center.
