Bayer Becker’s full array of design capabilities will be utilized for Miami Township’s newest park including landscape architecture, civil engineering and surveying. The park is located along the Great Miami River in Cleves, Ohio and will feature multiple athletic fields, tennis courts, a dog park, a playground, park shelters, a concession stand, restrooms and a shared use trail that runs around the perimeter of the park.
Bayer Becker worked alongside the Trustees throughout the conceptual phase. Prior to design, Bayer Becker conducted a meeting with the Township trustees to establish a project schedule, identify any potential challenges and verify the project deliverables. Immediately after the meeting Bayer Becker and the trustees walked the site to document the existing conditions. This cooperation also included a design workshop, led by Bayer Becker that helped direct the park’s design. Elements discussed included vehicular and pedestrian circulation, services for the park including concession and restrooms, and the types of recreation facilities the Trustees desired. Based on these discussions concepts for the park were generated.
In addition to design Bayer Becker provided a review of the master plan’s design elements and identified elements that could be funded from non- Township funding sources and suggested any changes in the design that may improve chances for alternative funding. Bayer Becker also researched various for profit and non-profit local, state, federal programs and funding sources for appropriate elements of the development plan.
