Bowman Consulting is providing entitlement, design, engineering and replatting services for a 1,709-acre master planned community in Casa Grande, AZ. The first phase was previously designed with the entire community and built, while the remaining phases stalled with the economic downturn. Bowman is working on revisions to the remaining phases to account for adjustments in arterial roadway alignments, park acreage requested by the City and adjustments in noise contours for the airport which have all occurred since the last amendment was approved in 2006. An existing commercial corner, schools and the existing residences within the first phase provided some unique design challenges when having to adjust to meet the revised City plans and street design.

A design challenge was to design the future phases of Villago while taking into account existing roadways, utilities, active well sites, and existing homes within Phase 1. Bowman’s civil design responsibilities include providing roadway, utility infrastructure, storm water, grading and drainage, and amenity/ open space design opportunities.
