Kelly Mill Elementary Recieves Board Approval

The Forsyth County Board of Education has voted to move forward with the Kelly Mill Elementary School Project. Breedlove Land Planning provided landscape architectural and civil engineering services for the project. BLP tackled the problems of  small acreage and hilly terrain by utilizing bioretention for water quality treatment and three underground detention systems to increase usable space. Unlike traditional landscape areas, planted bioretention cells will serve as landscape for the school grounds and as treatment for water quality.  Construction should begin in January, 2011 with the school scheduled to open in August 2012.
