newark600x410 The Newark Specific Plan project consists of the land planning and environmental assessment of over 500 acres of land in Newark.  The Plan includes 1200 single-family residential units, 180 senior apartments with below-grade parking, a new elementary school and an 18-hole championship golf course.

Kier & Wright provided all civil engineering design, survey, planning, and graphic design support services for the project.  A significant challenge to the project was a flood zone driven requirement to elevate the project ten feet above sea level, which required over one million cubic yards of imported fill.
