Description Historical Site Analysis interpretation would include CCC history, the use of the CCC property during World War II, and the history of some of the early projects of the PRP such as the Provo Reservoir Canal represented by the historic bridge. The cost for moving and minimal rehabilitation of one of the buildings is approximately $30,000. The remaining structures would be demolished and removed at a cost somewhat less than $175,000. Additional opportunity costs may be associated with this alternative. Summary In conclusion, each alternative offered in this report can be assessed by several different value categories: 1) cost in historic value, 2) cost in dollars, and 3) knowledge of local history, enjoyment, and education generated for the public. The Demolition Alternative cost would be expensive in terms of historic value. The physical buildings and structures would be eliminated. There are some non-public historic photos and a small report on file with the SHPO in Salt Lake City. In addition, a larger report and photos would be prepared and filed with the SHPO. The cost in dollars for this alternative would be approximately $175,000 to demolish and remove the buildings. The cost of a new facility for PRWUA is not included here. The new facility would include some CCC Camp and WW II written history and photos in the building. This display would be available to the customers and general public who conduct business with the PRWUA. The Mothballing Alternative would be good in terms of historic value. The buildings would be kept intact and the historic value retained. The cost in dollars for this alternative would be approximately $139,840 to retain fire, safety and structural minimum standards. However, since the property would not be of any use to the PRWUA, inclusion of the cost of replacement land at $522,836, would have to be factored in making the total cost for this alternative approximately $662,676. The Mothballing Alternative, while physically preserving the buildings, would not enable the agency to open the property to the public. The Bureau of Reclamation needs the use of this property for construction and dam maintenance equipment storage, and office space for personnel to meet the mission and goals of the agency. final Report 7 April \6, 2002
