Engineer’s Association of Nevada County presents annual project, engineer awards

Submitted to The Union

The Engineer's Association of Nevada County announced the winners of its Project and Engineer of the Year awards this week.

According to a news release, Forest Springs Mobilehome Community Phase 4 earned the project award, while Bill Green is the engineer winner for 2017.

For nearly 50 years, the Tucker Family has owned, developed, and managed Forest Springs Mobilehome Community, providing a housing option for seniors.

"Over 10 years or more, as Forest Springs, LLC, they acquired new land from three adjoining owners and embarked on the fourth phase of the project," the release states. "After diligent and creative planning and engineering work by Nevada City Engineering and Nevada County, the Forest Springs Mobilehome Community Phase 4 project was permitted and construction began in spring 2016, and was largely completed before the epic rains of the 2016-17 winter shut everything down."

The project, finaled by the county and State of California in 2017, was a joint creation of the owners of Forest Springs Mobilehome Community LLC, Nevada City Engineering, Nevada County, and other local contractors and engineers.

Green, of Nevada City Engineering, is the engineer of record for the Forest Springs Project. He developed several unique design elements, one of which is the detention pond that follows contour on the south side of the development. According to the release, he helped coordinate the myriad of other design professionals and personally escorted the plans through California Department of Housing and Community Development.
