Central Parke at Colonial Charles
Eco-Friendly Central Parke
Slenker Communities recently became the first recipient of the Maryland National Capital Building Industry Association’s (MNCBIA) prestigious 2007 Michael T. Rose Community of the Year Award recognizing exemplary environmental stewardship in developing Central Parke at Colonial Charles, a 55+ lifestyle community in Waldorf, Maryland. The Springfield, Virginia-based community developer also earned the Environmental Award for Land Development for Colonial Charles.
“We are thrilled to have Central Parke at Colonial Charles singled out for our environmental efforts,” said William T. Slenker, president of Slenker Communities. “With each community we create, we pay particular care and attention to maintaining, improving and enhancing the environment. We want to be good stewards of the environment and design with the natural surroundings in mind.”
According to the MNCBIA, the judges chose Slenker Communities and Central Parke at Colonial Charles because of the “outstanding example of a successful integration of land development into the natural environment that demonstrates Slenker’s dedication to the preservation of the natural beauty of the land through innovative ideas and resourceful thinking.”
Central Parke at Colonial Charles had originally been designed for 575 homes, however, Slenker Communities reduced the project density to 449, which resulted in the preservation of 30 acres of forested wetlands and 42 acres of vegetated open area within this 128-acre project. Additional buffering was added to the wetland area to make way for nature trails. The community’s intricate storm water management system was dubbed an “environmental masterpiece” by Maryland’s Department of the Environment.
