These are projections made by the Sfark County Area TiTanspor- talion Study (SCATS*. Data on projected land use' In the area was provided in a special meeling Monday night in Council Chambers by three SCATS staff members, Larry R. .Wackerly, technical director, and James Wininger and Roger Sno- ble,. planners. , . . Those attending included Mayor Charles B. Strausser; Weldon C. Page, director of administration; Police Chief Robert Fulk; Russell Youtz, chairman of Planning Commission; and several members of city council and the zoning and Building Board ol Appeals. Twenty-year projections for the city were made on the basis of, boundaries in 1965, Wackerly explained. There have been annexations both to the north and south since then. ■• ■> Cultural and recreational employment is expected to increase 75 per cent; public employment 104 per cent; and transportation, communication and utility employment 114 per cent.' Wackerly explained that fac tors considered in developing the land use plan are: existing land use, committed development projects, previous land use plans, and statistical analysis district (SAD) forecasts developed from such factors as access to highways, proximity to existing development, availability of seWers. and desirability of the land. In presenting a map showing projected land use for North Canton in 1985, Wackerly asked for suggestions and changes recommended by the city's officials. '-. Although a number of minor changes were made, the map remained essentially as present, ed by SCATS. Most of" the"r£_idettt!_tl Wea in the city was' projected as medium density of 2 to 6 homes per acre. Land near the center of the city was of higher density, over 6 units per acre. Chatham Hills was the only low density (1 to 2 homes per acre) area. Industrial growth was. seen near Portage St. and Whipple Rd.-NW. ■: • . Apartments were envisioned in j the southern end of the city along S. Main St. From Easthill St. SE on S. Main St. to the northern end of the city on both sides of Main St., is a projected commercial strip. , : At the north.- also.'were seen apart men t development and more commercial (expansion,, such as a possible shopping cen-, ter beyond Applegrove Rd. i Commercial development is also expected in the Portage St. and Pittsburg Rd. areas. Apartments or commercial areas could go in on Whipple Rd. near Glenwood St. In the Dogwood Park area, plans ,call for a community. ,swimming pool and a possible new elementary school just north'-of'the pool property. ,-.. i Wackerly explained that the transportation study is "wholly dependent on land use." ,• "I_y determining tbe, estimated) number of persons who will be- living in an area 20. years from now," he stated; "we. can fore-- cast the number, of yeto-cles ex-; pected and the number of trips they will make. '•If it looks like the traffic will be more, than a given.street can handle, we then will map. out an alternate route or a new road to relieve the congestion." ■~r«^'-T-VS,"r<!__!T^_sfw I". l>. ] lr-'i>!<Jrr-M FIRST HARBINGER OF SPRING. These last few balmy days not only announced Spring's official arrival on Thursday but also brought another sure sign that spring has arrived. Sunny skies were dotted with bright colored kites—as were many trees and utility lines. That thrill of reeling out the kite line still remains a favorite with the younger generation despite the crisis of snagged branches and tangled tail lines, a job which absorbs young Dan and Madge Rodemeyer. The children of M r. and Mrs. Peter Rodemeyer of 306 Harmon St. SW, "they are among many who find the open space of Witwer Park a perfect spot for this sport. Two Awards Feature Of Chamber Dinner Mar. 26 guaranteed Income^Not The Answer Guaranteeing everybody an adequate income might seem to be the most direct and simple method to end poverty. But it Could be the most destructive, according to a Stanford' Uniyersity economist . gangers in the various income. supplement proposals. such' as the Negative Income Tax and the Guaranteed A"r rtual Income, are easily apparent, says Roger. A.,;.Freenjan, ' Sehjoj, Staff member of the University's Hoover Institution $&*$&&' Revolution and Peace. . Easy access to public funds, in Freeman's opinion, is eco3n,pmi^ly wasteful, and socially destructive. "There is an inherent danger," he says, "in dividing the pepple ipto two* classes; those who produce and pay taxes and. those who are ^erm^eji#y dependent on the public treasury although they cpuld itevfarrin. useful work."

Johnson will direct volunteers from the local Jaycees who will be contacting area commerce. Harold Mylius is commerce division coordinator. Henry A. Tobey is special gifts division chairman and Dr. Harry Osborne is handling public relations for the Student Loan Foundation and its drive. Stadium Fence To Come Down This Saturday The 2,300 feet pf corrugat. ed. fencing.,around Memorial Stadium football and baseball areas will come down Saturday. New six-feel, high cyclone fencing will be replacing it in the next two or three weeks according to Chuck Gulling, public relations chairman for the fencing project of the North Canton Jaycees. Mr. Gulling reports the Fence Fund met its goal and a contract was awarded to the U. S. Steel Corp. for the new fencing, which will encircle the Stadium area and the adjoining Little League Fields and practice area. Volunteer crews of Jaycees, joined by members of the Hoover Sideliners Club and Little League personnel, expect to have a 7 a.m. starting time Saturday for removal of the old fence, which has encircled Memorial Stadium since built here by public subscription in 1945. In addition to blowtorch dismantling of the metal fence, the men will have to remove some 250 support posts to clear the area-for the new fence. The Sideliners, Little League Association, service clubs, local industry, merchants and professional people contributed to the drive for fence funds, which was directed by Dick -A-. White. Working with him, in addition to Mr. Gulling, were Bob Counts, Myron Draper, Les Mohler, Larry Peck, Roger Schultz, Neal Surbey, and Bob Werstler. This public service project by Jaycees will add immeasurably to the attractiveness and public convenience of the area from Wise- on the East, 7th St. on the North, Park Ave. on the West and to Hoover Co. property on the South. With enlargement of the Little League complex, addition of a city recreation area just north of it, new tennis courts added to Dogwoo Park and plans for a new Olympic pool on 7th St., next summer, the area is' shaping up as a spacious recreation center for the city.

She delivers the new 1969, blue on white plates to Don Hossler of 525 Pershing Ave. SE, who like everyone else in Stark County had to dig deeper in his pocket for that $5 tax levied by the county, bringing new plate costs to $15. With the tax comes a small decal which affixes to the. lower right hand corner of the rear plate showing.you've paid the special tax.
