A premier multi-disciplinary consulting firm

Ormond Beach, Florida

The project entailed the expansion of this religious and educational institution facility.  This site was unique with regards to environmental constraints in that portions of the expansion were within the Riparian Habitat Protection Zone (RHPZ) and the County’s Natural Resource Management Area (NRMA).  These designations identify additional protection measures for habitats and protected species providing unique nesting and foraging environments.  Upon completion of the Environmental Assessment, negotiations for impacts to the RHPZ resulted in Conservation Easements along the Tomoka River within the RHPZ and NRMA. ZCA’s team member, Cobb Cole, provided the legal work required to prepare, draft, negotiate and finalize the Easements.
