The program Gulling, 42, of 1560 Wilbur Dr. NE, is currently serving as president of the North Canton Board of Education. He served over four years on Planning Commission. , Mayor Strausser will soon be appointing a successor toMr. Gulllng's post. - City Planners unanimously recommended to Council a Dedication Plat of 41 feet of right-of-way in the City of North Canton on the Guenther-Tucker Property, in the interest of long ■; range planning. This land is located on the northeast side of Cleveland Ave. N. and touching Orion Rd. and .«Wilbur Drive. ; Evan Coombs of 3081 ;Orio Rd. NE stated his ; home now sets back 25 feet from Orion Rd. "If you take away eight feet of my set back to put Orion Road through, to Ivy St., a busy highway v/ill be right at my front door!" stated Mr. Coombs. "All you people are interested In Is money and big business," Mr. Coombs told City Planners. "You care nothing about the little man!" "If you only realized the value of that road Inthe future," Joe Guenther explained. "I don't think you can put a value on my kids or my pete," said Coomb?. '1 1 ti&Ve' nothing agatnst.Mr,, Guenther or the City of North Canton, but when someone moves in to make capital gain I don't think it's fair to the little man." added Coombs. "My home is built, I've investedmy money!" "I don't know how anything can be done to property Joe Guenther doesn't own!" said Mr. Coombs. "We're only putting the land there for the future," explained Mr. Plasket, "not to c h a n g e anything now." 'It's a shame that someone can just come in and offered an opportunity for each delegate to receive an insight into the function of State Government and to have personal questions answered. Charles B. Dyger, State Association Director for the Ohio VIC A Association was in charge of the meeting with Robert Weisbrodt, Ohio VICA State President, presiding for the day. change a street and cause nothing but headaches," stated Coombs. "The road you are considering is a driveway, not a highway and any kind of widening for the required 50 feet would put houses very close towhatcouldbe- come a very busy highway," added Coombs. The map drawings represents only 41.75 feet. Required footage for a street is 50 feet. The 50 foot easement would include sidewalks, grass strip, sewer, and curbs, leaving 30 feet for the actual street. The recommendation for the Dedication Plat will now be put before City Council for their decision. Recommendation for a parking lot at the 21-unit Meadowbrook Park apartments, to be located on the corner of Schneider and Sunford SE was tabled for two reasons. One being there will be more than 25 parking spaces and grading of the parking lot for proper water drainage is a big problem, sinbe there are no storm sewers In the area. Further negotiations will be needed with Dennis Royer Heads Malone Fund Volunteers in^the. North Canton area are making personal calls for the 1975 Malone College Annual Fund Drive, as the North Canton effort began Friday, Feb. 14, at a special kick- off meeting. This year makes the fifteenth annual campaign to meet the College's operating expenses. 375 volunteers throughout Stark County are making calls on friends and business firms to reach Malone's $125,000 goal. The North Canton leader is Harold Royer, sales manager for Pacific Lumber Company. Assisting him are Larry Bishop, Ted Hummel, Dick Logan, Mrs. Richard Longbrake, Ed Lowry, George Swindell, and George Turkal. Malone is a private, church-related liberal arts college of 841 students and is independent of direct tax support. Funds from the campaign are used to provide student aid, faculty salaries, and programs and equipment for student in struction. Flechtner, the City Engineer and the property owner. The second reason Is that these apartments fall into a group development rather than multi-family and drawings need more work. Mr. Plasket explained this is considered a group development because the total development consists of four lots,-not just o*ne, which includes crossing lot lines. Curt Schuman, a representative for Dwight Barn- hart who is the owner of the property, told City Planners Hammontree & Associates is working on the drainage problem and the landscaping. Lea Fallatti of 1212 Sun- ford SE, who lives adjacent to Mr. Barnhart's property told City Planners that drainage in the area is a real problem. "I will do everything in my power to try to prevent this because I don't think he can correct the drainage problem," said Mrs. Fallatti. "We don't need 21 more families In this area, and that piece of property isn't very big for 21 units!" she added. "Nothing will be done in that area until the City is satisfied with the drainage," stated Forrest Moore, Secretary of Planning Commission. Mr. Plasket told Mr. Schuman that plans should include shielded lighting for the development and show what trees and shrubs they plan to preserve on Schneider. The next meeting.of the North Canton Planning Commission will be Monday, Apr. 7 at 7:30 p.m. in Council Chambers. In Observance Of Scout Week As aipart of the National Celebration of Girl Scout Week, March 9-15, the troops of North Canton West Neighborhood will be Hlghtlng" the Main Street of town Sunday evening, Mar. 9 from 7-9 p.m. Local scouts, Brownies, Ju- 'niors, Cadettes andSenlors will place luminarias along the curbs. The bags will go north and south from the square. Each bag will be decorated with the official Girl Scout insignia and burn brightly to express the feeling of scouting that leads girls from ages 6 to 16 through adventure and learning. Rep.Johnson Reports From The Capital DEPRESSION- PROOF OHIO The foremost items currently on the General Assembly's agenda are Governor Rhodes' bold proposals to "depression- proof Ohio." His package of economic initiatives includes four constitutional amendments promoting inner city industrial expansion, low-cost housing development, s t a t e-wide transportation research and construction, and a capital improvements plan for urban renewal, health facility development, and expanded ports along the Ohio River and Lake Erie. All will provide jobs, reducing the welfare, crime, and despair of unemployment. Governor Rhodes has, in effect, thrown the ball to the Democrat-controlled legislature in the form of these proposals They can either run with It, stall, devise their own game plan as an alternative, or do nothing. To reject the Governor's program without providing an alternative would place a grave hardship upon the thousands of Ohioans jobless through no fault of their own. , Two factors greatly complicate legislative maneuvering. The amount of money they will make available, over $4 billion guarantees active participation in the legislative process by special interests desiring favorable consideration. Each legislator, committee and chamber must draw that fine line between testimony by such groups offered out of self-interest, and that which will improve the bills for all segments ofthe general public. For the Governor's programs to be of maximum benefit to all Ohioans they must appear on the June 3 primary ballot for voter approval. Therefore, as constitutional amendments, they must pass the legislature with 3/5 approval of both chambers andbe filed with Secretary of State 90 days prior to the election. This crisis requires decisive and responsible (Continued to Page 2) HOSTING NEW PROGRAM. In preparation for the time when the congregation of Community Christian Church, 111 Wltwer St., will be meeting In temporary quarters during the construction of their new building, a program of House Ministry will be initiated.
