Communication Assignment 2 MEMORANDUM TO THE CITY Imagine yourself as a city planner. City officials have obtained a state grant to help construct a new recreational area in a scenic location outside of town and are considering the following three alternatives: • Build 40 picnic sites, each with a table, barbecue, and parking space • Build 30 picnic sites and 20 camping sites (including parking space) • Build 20 picnic sites, 20 camping sites, and 12 cabins (including parking space) You have gathered some cost and benefit estimates for each of the three types of facilities based on similar facilities built by the city and county in the recent past. You estimate that each picnic site would cost $900 to build, $120/y to maintain, and would be used approximately 180 times per year. Each camping site would cost $2000 to build, $180/y to maintain, and would be rented approximately 80 times per year at $2/day. Each cabin would cost $8000 to build, $500/y to maintain, and would be rented approximately 60 nights per year at $12/night.
