The State Parks Board and department personnel have expressed the desirablility of developing a wall finish over the existing caliche material that could achieve the texture and color of the original white plaster used in the early 1900s. Previous work with cast-in-place concrete on a similar wall in the New Yard area was completed at a cost of $25.00 to $32.00 per square foot of wall face.

A built-up roof frame was also considered in this report. Due to the natural appearance of the other cell blocks and the buildings in the complex, it would not seem appropriate to scar the natural setting of the cellblock hill with any large protective overhang.
