APPLIED ENVIRONMENTAL recently completed the first ecological study in Springfield Township. The study was used to determine the projected effects of a condominium development on the surrounding area and to protect some of the natural habitat of various birds and wildlife, including naturally existing food and protective cover. The study allowed for the development of 13 home sites, leaving 23.65 acres of the 40-acre parcel undisturbed. The undisturbed area of land will preserve native vegetation and maintain a corridor for wildlife movement between the subject property and adjacent properties. Both the developer and township were pleased with the results, and the township has since used APPLIED ENVIRONMENTAL’s ecological study as an example for other proposed developments.
APPLIED ENVIRONMENTAL has completed wetland determinations and delineations on vacant land for various developers in southeast Michigan.
