FPA was retained by Endicott College, a private four-year institution on the coastline of Beverly, MA, to pursue authorization for the school’s previous ten and future ten years of planned institutional expansion. Over the past twenty years, the College has experienced significant enrollment and programmatic growth, necessitating the construction of new athletic and academic facilities, parking structures, and dormitory buildings. Throughout the permitting process for this expansion, FPA coordinated with local and state agencies and the College to respond to wetlands, traffic, and historical protection concerns on the 232-acre campus. The thoughtful placement of future development in relation to sensitive environmental resources gained the support of local stakeholders and continued to support Endicott’s reputation as a responsive neighbor in the suburban area.
