Are there any environmental impacts to the construction or overall design?

As a part of the National Environmental Policy Act, studies were conducted to assess for the possible effects of this project on the social, cultural, and natural environments. The project may require minimal amounts of bank stabilization along Boundary Street and will include construction of an elevated boardwalk along the marsh line of Battery Creek.

The project won’t result in permanent loss of aquatic function within the marsh or result in any adverse impacts to the natural environment. All necessary environmental certifications and permits will be obtained prior to construction of the project.
