Other Considerations
Alternative 1: Delayed/No Action (Not Recommended)
Cost Implication: Potential reduced costs for avoided work but potential for increased costs related to
enforcement of Settlement Agreement.
Pros:    (1) Preserve Port capital funding and resources for other priority projects and financial initiatives
Cons:   (1) Would not comply with the Port's agreement to address ADA concerns.
(2) Could potentially increase safety risk to customers and visitors.
Alternative 2: Proceed with construction of the structural improvements as
proposed, contracting through Port Construction Services small works
contracts (Recommended)
Cost Implication: Requires allocation of $850,000 in the Capital Plan.
Pros:    (1) Comply with the Port's agreement to address ADA concerns within the committed timeframe.
Cons:   (1) Limited temporary construction impacts.
