The Town of Boone engaged WithersRavenel to provide programming and master planning services for a future municipal campus site on 54 acres near US 421 adjacent to the South Fork of the New River.
The project seeks to provide space to consolidate the Town’s many Public Works facilities with a new Planning Department office, a new police department headquarters, a new fire station, a new secure operations center, a new ABC store and a new greenway trailhead and future nature park amenities. The project is to further consider all the proposed development in a sustainable manner adhering to the Town Council’s goals for carbon neutral development of Town facilities.
The team prepared a detailed site evaluation reviewing environmental features such as protected wetland areas, floodplains, steep slopes, soil construction suitability, rock outcroppings and potential tree protection areas. A detailed geotechnical investigation and coordination with local NCDOT District regarding access were included with the evaluation.
