The Oaks at Georgetown

GMB provided planning and engineering services for a mixed-unit development located on 95.8 acres in the Town of Georgetown.  The development proposed by Anderson Homes, LLC consists of 539 residential units and a community club house.  A system of roads, sidewalks, and designated parking areas will serve the proposed development.  The club house includes a pool, playground, recreation field and a multipurpose building.  The development will necessitate the construction of an on-site stormwater management pond, as well as a floodplain/meadow stormwater area adjacent to the existing tax ditch.

GMB’s scope of work included:

■      Coordination with Delaware Office of State Planning

■      Coordination of topographic survey

■      Sanitary sewer design

■      Water system design

■      Stormwater management & erosion / sediment control design

■      Tax ditch court order change through DNREC

■      Roads design

■      DelDOT entrance design for two access points

■      Coordination of wetlands permit

■      Planning and Zoning submittal for Concept Plan and Preliminary Site Plan

■      Town Council submittal for Final Site Plan

The development was designed in accordance with the Town of Georgetown’s design standards.  All permits were received; however, the developer decided against commencing construction of the project.

GMB is currently coordinating updates and extensions of the permits and approvals on behalf of the new property owner, Lamboll Georgetown Oaks, LLC.
