Michigan State University Mixed-use Development
Student-teams developed preliminary designs for elements of a 60-acre site located east of Hagadorn Rd. and south of the Red Cedar River. The site was to be designed as a mixed-use development following the Meridian Township Planned Unit Development (PUD) requirements.
The project development must include both residential and commercial land uses. The objective of this project was to provide Meridian Township Planning Commission with a Preliminary Engineering Design. Major goals were to maximize green space; create a walkable community and ensure pedestrian and bicycle access to campus, East Lansing, and Meridian Township; to protect as many of the existing trees on-site as possible; and to identify and protect any federally classified wetlands on-site.

Michigan State University Nemoka Drain Project
Student-teams provided Meridian Township and the Ingham County Drain Commissioner with a Preliminary Engineering Design for a 115-acre site located just east of Marsh Road in the vicinity of Haslett Road. Major goals for the project are to prevent flooding in the Nemoka Drain District; improve road conditions, create a walkable community, and ensure pedestrian and bicycle access to nearby schools and the pathway; protect as many of the mature trees on-site as possible; prevent flooding in the Nemoka Drain and scouring of the channel as the water enters. All work is to be done in accordance with local, state, and Federal regulations.
