Brown’s Beach

August 9, 2017

The beach property deteriorated over time, becoming overgrown with vegetation since it was last open in 2007. In recent years, the property was being pursued for residential development. However, through new local revenues the Town of Stillwater, NY, was able to purchase the 9-acre Brown’s Beach parcel to re-purpose back to public use. Chazen was requested by the Town to perform an up to date boundary survey as part of the property closing documents. The survey included setting up the riparian boundaries of Saratoga Lake.

In addition the Town hired Chazen to re-engineer and update the entire site infrastructure for parking, erosion and runoff control, marina and banquet facilities, traffic management and ADA compliance. In order to update the site infrastructure, it was necessary to complete an existing conditions topographic and utility survey.
