Description Historical Site Analysis Alternatives Demolition Alternative The PRWUA has stated that the cost analyses demonstrates that it is not feasible to maintain the CCC Camp as an historic property, or to rehabilitate it for contemporary use. Where Reclamation determines, in accordance with Section 106 of the NHPA, that maintaining or rehabilitating a historic property for contemporary use is not feasible in accordance with the Secretary of the Interior Standards and Guidelines for Rehabilitation, appropriate recording of the historic property in accordance with Section 110(b) of NHPA must be completed before it is altered, allowed to deteriorate, or demolished. The cost of demolition and removal of the buildings is approximately $175,000. Additional opportunity costs may be associated with this alternative. Mothballinq Alternative The land upon which the CCC Camp structures sit is a valuable and necessary space that has been in use for construction purposes since 1956 for Provo River projects. It is now and in the foreseeable future even more valuable for water projects, continued work, and completion. In order to implement this alternative, Reclamation will have to bring the buildings and structures up to a structural standard that would withstand snowloads, high winds, and seismic activity of a certain magnitude. Fire and safety hazards are another issue which would have to be addressed before these buildings could be closed and preserved. The cost of this alternative is two-fold; first, the cost of bringing the buildings up to structural, fire, and remedial safety standards would be $139,840. In addition, if all of the structures were closed and left in place, the property would no longer be usable for PRP work. PRWUA would be forced to move to another location in order to continue their work. Enclosed is a copy of a cost appraisal of the alternate properties which have been considered by PRWUA for location of the new buildings. Cost for replacement property would be approximately $522,836 (average per-acre cost of top four alternate properties multiplied by 3.78 acres). The total cost of this alternative would be ($139,840+$522,836) or approximately $662,676. In addition, other opportunity costs may be associated with this alternative. Complete Rehabilitation for Adaptive Reuse Alternative Included in this report are cost analyses for rehabilitating the buildings to bring them up to modern code, making them fully usable as a modern business complex.
