Civil Engineers Bail…FEMA

Harold Logan & Assoc. bailed on us a week into negotiating the proposal. A two-week long search yielded us with Dalton & Kendal, apparently a fairly knowledgable firm. While not officially signed on yet, Steve Collins from the firm has done quite a bit of leg work and has even visited Hearthwood to get a better idea of it all-without our prompting!

It seems that they will probably take a month or so to put together the proposal and there is something about nailing down the flood plain line using USGS data and their own topography work and reconciling the whole thing with FEMA maps. That may take 1-6 months. Then there is the county reviewing the grading plan-up to 60 days. So we’re looking at as soon as January and as late as June for the next steps…
