Abstract:"In working closely with representatives of the town and regulatory agencies, the golf course architects and design team were able to develop a finacially successful golf course for Monitcello that provided numerous environmental benefits: 1) By thinking "outside the box", the approach to the project allowed more dollars to be spent on environmental restoration work by improving the mill site as a separate work contract; 2) The acquistion for more acreage adjacent to the old uranium mill created an expansive and fluid greeneblt that now connects the town with continuous open space of a national forest; 3) Wildlife and residents benefit from the now continuous land which accounts for open space through the town. Wildlife now has an unobstructed (and protected) corridor to move across an existing highway from law to high ground; 4) Extra funds saved by the town will eventually be used to develop an interpretative center which explains the uranium legacy of the region. This was never a planned component of the prject, but is now feasible as a result of the creative funding and work strategy; 5) Revegetation of the mill site for golf would have required for more intense work and budget than for passive recreation and open space; 6) Water use is significantly reduced by keeping golf users together and and contiguous as opposed to separated by a highway; separation would have meant two water reservoirs and significant pumping (enerygy use, etc.); 7) Wetlands were increased by six acres by adding wetlands environments to the golf course areas and by restoring wetlands through the old mill site."
