West Regional Library - Cary, NC
After several months of planning by Wake County for a new West Regional Library in Cary, NC; McNeely Associates PA (MAPA) was contacted to prepare a comprehensive Master Plan for an environmentally sensitive site located in the Carpenter Village community. The site was located upstream from a major flood control lake and contained highly erosive, low strength soils. After preparation of the Master Plan, using background information supplied by the County and property owner; the County approved the plan and appropriated the necessary funds for construction.

During the final purchase negotiations with the property owner, he demanded additional acreage be set aside for his future use that rendered the approved plan 'unfeasible'. MAPA was asked to revise the Master Plan on a site that had been reduced by 25% in size, while keeping all of the required program elements. Due to the extensive "River Buffers" on the property, MAPA proposed using a "Green Wall" (MSE - Mechanically Stabilized Earth wall) to allow for the construction of the access drive across a portion of the urban transition buffer. After a comprehensive review by the Town of Cary, NCDENR and NCDWQ; the green wall was approved and permitted, allowing for the library to be constructed on schedule as planned.

The approved permit modification process also required an onsite BMP to mitigate the impervious areas. MAPA directed the onsite flows into an onsite dry detention and released the overflows in a non-erosive manner into the down steam lake.

The use of the green wall allowed for the location of a greenway trail that connected the neighborhood with the site and the adjacent elementary school.
