SSAAM & Sourland Conservancy Master Plan

No items found.

The Team developed a Site Master Plan to assist in telling the story of the African American community of the Sourland Mountain Region and provide a new home for administrative offices and visitor facilities for both organizations. Based on funding from the Somerset County Historic Preservation Grant Program to complete restoration of the National Register-listed Mt. Zion AME Church and from the New Jersey Historic Trust, the team prepared an architectural, landscape, and engineering site master plan report. The plan envisioned a cohesive master plan that connects both the restored Mt. Zion AME Church and the expanded Sourland Conservancy facilities.  PUSH studio provided master site planning concepts for parking, pedestrian movement, planting, and landscape connections to all new architectural structures.
