Press Release:

Firm Receives Nationwide Permit For Large Residential Development

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

David Flick, Principal and Founder, announces that the firm has successfully completed Section 404/401 Clean Water Act permitting for a large residential development in southern Overland Park, Kansas. On Monday May 7, the Overland Park City Council approved the zoning and preliminary development plan for Walnut Trails, the largest rezoning and preliminary development plan ever considered in Overland Park.


In 2007 and 2009 Terra Technologies completed a jurisdictional assessment of potential waters of the United States within the limits of the proposed development and submitted the findings to the Kansas City District of the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Regulatory Division for an approved jurisdictional determination (AJD). The 2009 AJD identified 0.21 acre of palustrine emergent wetland, 10,129 linear feet of relatively permanent stream channel, and 12,000 linear feet of non-relatively permanent stream channel. Total proposed jurisdictional impacts for the development were 1,100 linear feet, and the project was issued a nationwide permit and a waiver of the 300-feet rule since the majority of waters were avoided by the developer.


Terra Technologies also assisted the client in receiving compliance under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act by completing a Phase I Cultural Resources Survey. Additional clearances were obtained for Critical Habitat and Endangered Species. The project is scheduled to begin construction in 2014.
