  13. 13. CLEAN WATER FACILITY Design Charrette Masterplan Concepts Windjammer Site Concept Negative Issues• Probable archeological finds will affect costs and schedule.• Iconic architecture will cost approximately 5% more.• Community rooms, restrooms, etc. will add to the expense.• MBR facility costs more than an AS facility, but less of a “footprint” (2.5 - 3 acres).• Chosen site requires acquisition of some commercial private property and a zone change on any city-owned land.• New Bayshore Drive connection is an additional expense, if chosen.• Reconfiguration, or relocation of little League fields required if Bayshore Dr. built.
  14. 14. CLEAN WATER FACILITY Design Charrette Masterplan ConceptsCrescent Harbor North Site Concept
  15. 15. CLEAN WATER FACILITY Design Charrette Masterplan Concepts Crescent Harbor North Positive Issues• Land is mostly undeveloped, except for some residences.• Approximately 6-24 acres would have to be acquired at existing market values.• Large site area allows for expansion of other City uses, besides a treatment facility.• Site allows for construction of an AS type facility, which is less costly, but needs, a larger “footprint” (6 acres) and can be phased-in easier over time.• Building architecture can be more economical, if hidden from view with buffers.• Opportunity for some educational facilities to access trails down to wetland habitat areas.• Topography potentially assists gravity-assist AS systems.• Potential for some commercial use parcels fronting on Regatta Road once utilities are in place with a new facility.• Large site allows maximum flexibility for the future
  16. 16. CLEAN WATER FACILITY Design Charrette Masterplan Concepts Crescent Harbor North Negative Issues• All effluent/ waste water would have to be pumped from the exist. WJ site, up to this site, and back down to WJ site again, after treatment. This requires new utility piping expense and pump stations.• Topography will require additional expense for several retaining wall systems to create flat areas for development and internal roads.• Stormwater control expense will be required on west side of site along Regatta and/or Torpedo Roads.• Decommissioning Torpedo Road, will require additional expense for improvements to Regatta and Crescent Harbor Roads, including curb/gutter sidewalk at frontage and possible new roundabout to access Navy Base entrance.• Critical areas on site at easterly end will require delineation and adequate buffers.• If more land is utilized for other uses (i.e. Solid waste, etc.), a smaller footprint MBR facility will cost more than an AS system.• A Pump Station structure will be required at Windjammer site.• Site will have to go through a City Annexation process, and Land use Zone change.
