Abstract: This appendix contains a description of the conceptual plan that is being proposed for the Central Everglades Planning Project (CEPP) for recreation purposes at four sites within the EAA Compartment A2 footprint, one site in Northern WCA 3A and additional features in Southern WCA 3A/B. This analysis will determine the net benefits for the recreation sites proposed: within the proposed FEB footprint and along the L-5 in northern WCA 3A accessed from Hwy 27 and additional features at the southern end of WCA 3A and in 3B. Recreation features are being included in the CEPP as an incidental project benefit requested by the local sponsor, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD). These recreation benefits will not be used in the justification of the recommended plan. The SFWMD provided the conceptual recreation plan which identified facilities and their locations. Due to the incidental effect of the recreation elements, a determination of acceptable design to meet Corps standards has not been completed at this study phase. Recreation costs have been provided by the SFWMD and a contingency of 43% bring the estimated total costs for recreation to $6,400,000.
