Chapel Trail DRI

Pembroke Pines, Florida

Chapel Trail is a 1,880 acre PUD located at U.S. Highway 27 and Pines Boulevard in Pembroke Pines. This project is primarily residential with industrial parcels. Craven Thompson and Associates, Inc. prepared the DRI for this project and provided design services for the backbone infrastructure and most of the development parcels. This includes roadway design, a master sewage pump station and sewage collection system, drainage and water distribution system. The development parcels include single-family projects, light industrial projects, a shopping center and a City park. Craven Thompson and Associates, Inc. prepared plats for the entire project, as well as many subsequent replats of smaller parcels. This project required wetland permitting with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, South Florida Water Management District and Broward County Environmental Protection Department (BCEPD). Craven Thompson and Associates, Inc. obtained approval of the first wetland regeneration area approved by BCEQCB, now BCEPD. This involved the backfilling of excavated lakes with muck and then planting these areas with wetland species.
