Current Featured Project: Summer Village
Memories of family summer vacations often revolve around the water. Whether it be the lake or the ocean, millions of families every year head out to the water for a week or two to enjoy family time together. Most of these families share the desire to some day purchase their own vacation home near the water. Enter Summer Village.
Summer Village is a 278 unit cottage community located along the shore of Long Sought For Pond in Westford, Massachusetts. Several different models of cottages are available consisting of two bedrooms and approximately 750 square feet. The units are designed with a front porch and are purposely set close to the roads to promote a community approach.
Ammenties abound at Summer Village with neighborhood Pocket Parks where residents can gather around the fire pit, adult and family pools, fitness center, pavilion where movies are shown in the summer, community center, sports facilities, putting green, etc. The concept is designed to promote family time together with the feel of an old fashioned family vacation.
In order to permit the project, the town was petitioned to create a new zoning by-law to allow the development. Presentations were made to the town to show the advantages to allowing the project over the allowed uses under then current zoning. Once the new by-law was approved, design of the project began.
Project design required the layout of infrastructure to minimize tree removal and land disruption while creating family neighborhoods, gathering and play areas which emphasized the natural amenities of the site. Drainage was designed to blend with the environment and consists of multiple sand filters, drainage swales and detention areas that in many instances are undetectable to residents. Roadways were designed to minimize pavement and implement natural calming methods to slow traffic.
Water and septic for the site needed to be accommodated on site. This was addressed with the design and local and state permitting of an on-site community water supply site as well as an individual sewage treatment plant.
Today, Summer Village is a bright spot in the development community. Over 150 families now enjoy their own cottages and look forward to summer long vacations with new and old friends in an atmosphere reminiscent of yesteryear. LandTech Consultants is proud to have been an integral part of the planning, design, permitting and construction of this unique and exciting community.
