The three options presented were the stabilization of the current building and minimal removal of the seawall around the area at a cost of $145,000, stabilizing the building to last and overhauling the seawall at a cost of $865,000, and the elimination of the seawall and demolition of the building, with a replacement of a galvanized steel frame — a scale model of which was on display for councilors — for a cost of about $342,600.

Option 3 isn't an option.

Krystian Kozlowski, a senior who was the project manager for the study, said the goal was to investigate alternatives to revamping the aging, iconic station.

The alternative they arrived at was demolition? It would seem their goal is to save a few dollars, not to preserve Wood Island LSS. If that is indeed their goal they should man up and just say so because the word preservation doesn't even belong in the same article as this travesty of a goal they have.
