The development of an End Use Plan for Scofieldtown Park + Yard involved an intensive public engagement process. Aris Land Studio collaborated with over 600 residents to develop conceptual plans for the site. As a landfill, the site required designs to “cap” the site per US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) requirements. Impermeable membranes, minimum soil cover and slopes challenged the designs. Significant cultural opportunities were capitalized upon to link the site and community to trail systems, senior living facilities, and the Scofield Magnet Middle School. In addition to examining site specific issues, the public sought solutions for traffic calming and improved pedestrian safety. The holistic examination of the area resulted in a Final Design Plan embraced by the public, and feasible for implementation by the City of Stamford. Phase 1 Construction included the capping of the landfill, construction of the salt barn. Aris Land Studio lead efforts for topsoil design and installation, grading, landscaping, paving, fencing and pathways. Meadow seeding includes a variety of pollinator friendly perrenials, enhancing the habitat and creating an ecological success story.
