Within most communities there is underutilized open space maintained by the CDD. This area holds the potential to be repurposed into a valuable community asset, such as a soccer field, basketball court, tennis court, or playground.
BDI has assisted communities with the planning, design and construction phases, from start to finish, for a variety of athletic fields, play courts, and playgrounds while maintaining the community’s vision and a safe place for children
Most communities were originally designed with amenities to provide places for residents to interact and socialize, such as clubhouses, fitness centers, pools, or splash pads. Residents and board members with long-range vision and space within the community may implement additional facilities to further improve the living experience and add value to the whole community.
BDI has extensive experience working with CDD boards to identify potential areas for adding building facilities and implementing the specific interactive vision your CDD desires.
Walking and biking within communities is frequently limited to the neighborhood sidewalks and roadways. However, many CDDs have the option and ability to implement a recreational trail for avid walkers and cyclists through the natural areas of the community and even provide small pocket parks or stops along the way for residents to relax and enjoy nature from a park bench or have a family meal at a picnic table. BDI has the knowledge and resources to help create recreational trails and parks within the environmentally-sensitive areas of your community, including planning, design, and permitting services.
Typically, CDDs are responsible for maintaining community retention ponds. Maintenance of retention ponds can be challenging, particularly determining the most appropriate and cost-effective restoration design that is within the CDD’s budget. BDI provides solutions for all pond restoration issues, including prioritization of the community’s pond maintenance needs and development of a long-term plan, based on pond conditions, for future pond restorations programmed to meet the CDD’s budget.
In addition to retention ponds, all other stormwater management facilities within the community require periodic maintenance and repair. Curb inlets, mitered end sections, control structures, concrete weirs, and skimmers are some of the structures that must be maintained and replaced over time. BDI facilitates the maintenance and repair and replacement designs for these structures while considering the longest life span possible within the CDD’s budget. Our team also maintains compliance with local and state regulatory agency requirements.
Natural water levels fluctuate over time. In addition, an area’s stormwater management infrastructure may change due to extensive development. These factors can result in drainage issues ranging from persistent standing water in common areas to flooded roads, yards, driveways, and homes.
BDI applies our resources and experience in water resource engineering to perform system modeling, obtain permits, and design drainage improvements for communities to alleviate the myriad of drainage issues that may occur.
Over time asphalt deteriorates as it is exposed to everyday elements such as sunlight, water, and chemicals. BDI will perform comprehensive evaluations of current conditions, isolate problems, and provide tailor-made solutions to stabilize, repair, and extend the life of your community’s roadways.
CDDs identify a wide variety of projects each year to construct. As District Engineer, BDI can aid your staff in developing requests for proposals to get the best prices and quality from contractors for each project. Our team of construction managers and inspectors ensures the job is completed according to the design plans and specifications, providing extensive construction documentation for your records.
