Cleveland Lakefront State Parks Boundary Surveys

KS Associates provided boundary surveys for nine lakefront park areas leased to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). Nearly 940 man hours were required to survey more than 450 acres of land and 72,500 linear feet of boundary lines in less than five months. The project resulted in accurate boundary and property surveys that included not only raw data, but also easy-to-read aerial maps that provided a visual representation of the exact boundaries of each park along Lake Erie.

The project required extensive research; establishing State Plane Coordinates by performing a GPS survey based on existing NGS monuments; and coordination among the City, ODNR, Norfolk Southern Railroad and subconsultants.

This project won the first-ever "Highlights in Surveying Contest" sponsored by POB magazine. The project was selected due to the quality of the team, the project pace, the type of equipment used, and the amount of research and coordination required.
