Description Historical Site would cost $894,908 (see Appendix B for cost analysis itemization). These costs do not include all of the opportunity costs which may be included with this alternative. Additionally, even if each building was rehabilitated and brought up to code while still maintaining its historic integrity, the size and shape of the CCC buildings do not meet the needs of today's larger machinery storage and modern office space, nor would the needed traffic pattern be possible. The property would not accommodate the needs that PRWUA has requested. Exchange of Property Alternative Reclamation maintains office space and equipment storage on approximately 6 acres on the property adjoining the CCC Camp to the west. This area has been used by both the force account construction crew (the westernmost 3 acres) and the drill crew (the center 3 acre parcel) for the past several years. Upgrading the CCC Camp buildings for use, moving the present equipment to the CCC Camp location, and preparing the ground (graveling and grading) within the CCC Camp compound for use by either the force account crew or the drill crew and their associated heavy equipment would be costly. The cost to move the force account crew to the western portion of the original 10 acre parcel last year was approximately $53,500 (See Cost Analysis in Appendix B). This move was made from Reclamation's Provo Area Office to the relatively vacant piece of property that they now occupy. Consequently, most of the above cost would be repeated to move them to the CCC Camp property. The CCC Camp property does not allow enough open space for all of the equipment and machinery that will ultimately need to be stored by the force account crew, so some of the buildings would still have to be demolished and/or removed, mothballed, or rehabilitated. The price range for this alternative would be $53,500 + $175000 or some part thereof, or $53,500 + $894,908 or some portion thereof. The same or a higher cost would apply to moving the drill crew over to the CCC Camp property because they have much more equipment to move. In addition to the above cost estimates, it would cost PRWUA an additional $20,000 and possibly other opportunity costs, to move to one of the adjacent properties. Moving One of the CCC Structures to a Park Location for Adaptive Reuse One of the historic CCC Camp buildings would be disassembled, moved to nearby Anderson Park in Pleasant Grove, and reassembled on a concrete foundation, stabilized, rehabilitated, and interpreted for public education and enjoyment. The City of Pleasant Grove has agreed to accept one of the structures and hopes to work with the Pleasant Grove Certified Local Government on a plan to rehabilitate, interpret, and open this structure to the public at the Park for an educational experience in local history. This historic structure would be only part of a historic preserve at Anderson Park which would also incorporate a 1940's historic bridge which was originally part of the Provo Reservoir Canal infrastructure. It will be placed across a small creek within the Park. Historic Final Report 6 April \6, 2002
