A new, single-story design for the Woods Hole ticket building is high on the agenda when Steamship Authority governors meet Tuesday morning in Falmouth.

General manager Robert Davis is requesting authorization from the board of governors to begin schematic designs for a one-story terminal building and a two-story utility building on the waterfront site.

After more than a year of proposing multiple two-story designs that have met with persistent opposition from both Falmouth and Island residents, the boat line is now looking at a lower-profile ticket building that would block less of the Woods Hole passage water view.

The separate, two-story utility building would house some of the equipment and functions that were to reside on the second floor of earlier designs.

The meeting begins at 10 a.m. on the first floor of the Steamship Authority administration building on Palmer avenue in Falmouth. Vineyard residents who wish to attend the meeting may ride the ferry at no charge and take the parking shuttle bus to the administration building.

Also Tuesday, the board is expected to:

• Adopt the SSA’s new mission statement, crafted over a series of public open house gatherings in port towns starting in late July;

• Approve the fall 2020 operating schedule;

• Review proposed 2020 reservation opening dates;

• Vote on license agreements with passenger-only ferry lines Island Commuter Corp. and Hyannis Harbor Tours, Inc.

Boat line governors will also hear a business summary from September.

Governors will take up change order requests for payments to Woods Hole terminal architects BIA.studio and terminal contractor Jay Cashman, Inc., and a request for authorization to purchase spare parts for ferry engines.
