As Town Engineer for Poolesville since 2007, CAA staff have seen the Town's parks and recreational facilities grow from small, local parks to regional facilities. In 2010, the Town had its grand opening for a new skate park that would entice skaters from the entire Montgomery County area. Whalen Park is home to annual Poolesville Day and Springfest festivals with live music, vendors and activities for the family. Trails and playgrounds may be found in Stevens and Halmos Parks.
CAA oversess all of the Town of Poolesville park projects..
Since 2013, the CAA team has completed 17 projects for M-NCPPC including athletic fields, trails, ADA upgrades, stream restoration and park upgrades. We perform feasibility studies and data collection, prepare designs using Environmental Site Design and Sustainable Sites Initiative critera, and perform construction management including field support and preparation of as-builts for projects throughout Montgomery County.
CAA staff's experience with M-NCPPC began in 2008 with the completion of upgrades to the athletic fields at Montgomery Blair High School. We are currently overseeing the construction of Laytonia Recreational Park for which CAA staff were prime consultants to M-NCPPC (next page).
The CAA team led a multi-disciplined team for the design of a new park
located on 55 acres in a Special Protection Area (SPA) in Montgomery County. The project involved land surveying, all aspects of building and site design, irrigation, water quality monitoring, a water quality plan, cost estimating and construction management.
Laytonia Recreational Park comprises a trail system, lighted baseball and
multi-purpose rectangular fields including a synthetic turf field, warm-up areas, a playground, a maintenance/storage building, and a pavilion building with restrooms and vending areas. The SPA required unique and comprehensive stormwater management treatment systems to protect the quality of the adjacent stream. Our environmentally sustainable design used Environmental Site Design techniques for low-impact development. The design is predicated on a “treatment train” of Best Management Practice facilities in series
to ensure maximum treatment of any runoff from the site and
maximum runoff reduction.
