ACTT Workshop: New Jersey
November 16-18, 2004, Cherry Hill, New Jersey

Appendix C (continued): Skill Set Reporting Forms

Environmental Skill Set

Idea (Short Name) Idea (Detailed Description) Implementation Details (Barriers, Skill Set Coordination, etc.)
Must consider stormwater options early.
  1. Increased right of way.
  2. Increased cost.
  3. Affect constructibility.
  4. Will increase cost of construction.
  5. Need greater design detail.
Wetland mitigation.
  • Utilize area between Little Timber Creek floodplain/wetland and geometric skill set's newly proposed ramp B and C for mitigation.
Bellmawr Park-what can we do to assist the association in an equitable relocation of impacted residents?
  • Relocate within community.
  • Adjacent land to relocate units-tight squeeze due to other constraints-Little Timber Creek wetlands, tidal creek off of big timber, may be endangered species in wooded and field area.
  • Open space inside the community is very limited and building there may affect the historic integrity of the community and jeopardize eligibility for historic register.
  • Construct second story or attached units to replace impacted units.
  • Relocate community center and open space adjacent to highway and construct new housing in its place.
  • Offer buy-out to all residents to come up with units for relocation for residents who want to remain.
  • Acquire adjacent residences to add to Belmar Park Corp., then do a less restrictive relocation for the other residents. May impact historic register eligibility, very close knit community and would impact community cohesion, general Belmar population is not amenable to relocating Belmar Park residents in their community.
  • Initiate work session with Bellmawr Park community-identify impacts and constraints and let the association and the community recommend solutions.
  • What is fair market value for these properties?
  • How do people on the waiting list get into the association now?
  • Understand that historic district does not preclude any impacts to that community. Through 106 process acknowledge historic significance of community and try to minimize impacts.
Eliminate ramp C.
  • Provides environmental benefit with regard to wetlands. May also be used for Belmar Park relocation-affect community cohesion and the ramp C area is in a different municipality.
  • Pursue diverging ramp B and C alternative proposed by geometric skill set to provide significant wetland credit and stormwater opportunities.
Free space usage-existing or created.
  • Bellmawr Park Housing. Recreation-open space. Stormwater. Wetland mitigation. Ramp C as credit. Flood plain preservation.
  • Utilize area over tunnel for housing or cemetery-problem with hazmat detour. FHWA-has input on land usage over tunnel.
Underpass (depressed section).
  • Lack of modeling information for air and noise portals for tunnel/underpass scenario. Especially important in area adjacent to baseball fields. Will be very difficult to mitigate also with stacked road alternative.
Quiet paving.
  • Noise reducing pavement.
  • Should be used in noise sensitive areas.
Relocate Little Timber Creek and possibly associated floodplain and or elevate I-295 over floodplain.
  • DEP will not allow us to relocate the stream or span the floodplain (shading issue).
  • Open dialog with DEP again.
Re-evaluate Browning Road over I-295.
