About this Project
FST has reviewed more than 500 submitted subdivision plans and site plans for the Hopkinton Planning Board. FST’s work included preliminary and definitive subdivision plans, site plans, traffic studies, traffic mitigation measures, stormwater management for surface and subsurface drainage systems, construction cost estimates, and site inspection services for surety of performance. Proposed subdivisions range from 5-lot developments to phased 100-lot subdivisions covering 100 or more acres. FST also assisted the Town in completing a revision and update of its Subdivision Rules and Regulations.
FST has assisted the Zoning Board of Appeals with the review of several Comprehensive Permit developments and special permit projects. Work included review of a special permit application for a proposed Materials Recovery and Recycling Facility. FST also conducted site walkovers and attended evening hearings to assist the Town in the subdivision, site plan, and special permit review processes.
FST also provides services to the Hopkinton Deptartment of Public Works. FST developed and implemented a Pavement Management System for the town roadway system. This program described existing conditions on the roadways and reported the findings within the framework of alternative future funding scenarios. This is a network level-planning tool for future roadway project planning.
On behalf of the Town, FST submitted a Stormwater Management Plan and Notice of Intent for a General Permit under NPDES Phase II Program. Highway Department projects include preparation of contract plans and specifications for reconstruction of roadways, drainage facilities, and sidewalks at various locations throughout the Town.
The Hopkinton Board of Health also employs FST for engineering services for design reviews and construction inspections of sewage disposal (septic) systems at residential and commercial developments. FST's in-house Registered Sanitarian and Soil Evaluator provides this service.
