& Associates developed a CRMC Buffer Zone Management
Plan for a residence along the Sakonnet River in Middletown.
Plan elements included shoreline recreation structures,
shore access, and invasive plant species management and
restorative planting. One of the firm's on-staff Certified
Invasives Managers worked closely with CRMC to ensure the
project complied with CRMC Buffer Zone regulations and guidance.
Mason & Associates conducted field investigations, reviewed
plans, recommended plant species, and suggested methods
for invasive species control and longterm management. Plans
were approved and a CRMC Assent obtained for the project.
Ongoing services include monitoring of invasives control
and review of planting success.
