He reviewed the minutes of a Street and Alley Committee meeting hekf on May 29, 1974 in which the method cf assessing the Northwest Project was determined. According to Mr. Scheffler, these minutes indicate that the assessment was held down because the property owners had beenquo- ted a lower figure, not unlike that which occurred in the Southeast Project. In order to hold the Northeast assessment down, the city absorbed 100 per cent ofthe engineering cost rather i than 50 per cent as was done in the Southeast Project, as well as all subsequent projects. Scheffler said the primary argument for reducing the Southeast assessment was that it would be in line with what was done on the Northwest Project. The argument against reducing the assessment was that the Charter Review Commission Com MARIJU1ANA DESTROYED. This is how tor, located at the side.of the building.

Tickets for Friday's concert may be purchased at' the door. North Canton voters will be asked to approve four modified revisions to the City Charter in November. The 15-member Charter Review Commission 'met Wednesday, May 4 to sign the final report and forwarded it to City Council. The four changes are: Election of City Council president and vice president from among the four ward council members as well as at-Iarge members; Raising' the purchasing limit, without advertising for bids from $1,000 to $2, 500; Council confirmation of the mayor's appointment of the director of administration; Publishing legislation passed by council twice instead of once. The present Charter permits onlytheat-largecoun- cil members to be elected president of vice president and only the mayor has final judgement for the administrator's appointment. Council will hold public hearings on the proposed changes and then must pass a resolution to submit them to the voters. Southeast and all subsequent curb and gutter projects have been assessed on the same basis and to reduce one might require reducing all. Mr. Scheffler said the meeting on May 6 closed without recommending a reduction of the Southeast assessment. In Ward 2 Councilman William Gluck's Street and Alley Committee report from May 2, it states that the committee had a thorough discussion with respect to the anticipated special assessment cc <ts. for the Southeast Project. (Continued to Page 2) Council Hears Request For Zone Change Members of the North Canton City Council held a public hearing Monday evening, May 9 prior to the regular City Council meeting to hear a zone change request by Neil Spencer for land on the south side of W. Maple between W. Maple St. and Harmon St., from R-50 Single Family Residential to R2F Zoning. Mr. Spencer had originally requested the zoning be changed (to RMF-B Multi- ~ FanMly^bnt"is-now seeking R2F Zoning. Mr. Spencer, who presently resides at the 524 W. Maple St. address seeks to turn his home into a multi- family dwelling and build a three bedroom home for his family on the empty lot in back of the lot at 524 W. Maple St. According to Mr. Spencer, his lots are surrounded by R-50 single family, R-tfO Single Family, Park and institutional and Multi-Family zoning. The R2F zoning requires Mr. Spencer's lots to be 6,000 square feet for one family and 5,000 sq. feet for two family. The width at the building line for a one- family must be 50 feet and for two-family must be 80 feet. The mini mu m lot frontage for both must be 50 feet. Mr. Spencer's lots are each 160 feet deep and 53 feet wide. Mr. Spencer t61d Council that the Stark County Regional Planners recommended the R2F zoning. He also made a few suggestions to council such as forming an architectural review board, and using sketches in the zoning book so problems can be made visable. Governors of our south' ern states smile optimistically as they contemplate the rapidly expanding industrialization of theSouth. Conversely their counterparts in many northern states are deeply concerned about the economic decline in the North, caused, in part, by the southward emigration of industry from our northern and midwestern tier of states. An in-depth survey by the National Journal clearly showed there is a "massive flow of wealth from the Northeast and Midwest to the faster - growing West and South." Federal tax and spending policies were cited as ( major causes of this flow because they have notbeensensltive'tocnange. From 1964 to 1974 the number of American companies listed to Fortune magazine's list of 500based in the South and West rose from 75 to 112. The Sunbelt states also have gotten the lion's share of new foreign factories. Government sta-* tistics show foreign direct investment in this country totals more than $25bilUon, with $7.5 billion of the national total of $19 billion in foreign Industrial property located In 15 southern states. In the nationwide contest for federal dollars, Ohio is a net loser. I have recognized this trend and have pushed hard for an equitable share of federal funding for 16th District projects. I am convinced we, in Congress, must address the new economic realities. One of these realities is that Ohio's rate of out-migration is the highest in the nation. The Ohio Department of Economic and Community Development reported an estimated 300,000 persons moved out of Ohio between 1970 and 1972, and later statistics from other sources indicate the rate has increased since then. There has been mounting concern about this trend a- mong many of my colleagues, and a growing conviction that it must be reversed. A coalition of legislators has been organized here to work for the economic advancement of the Northeast and Midwest. It is a bipartisan effort, and its goal is to stem the flow (Continued to Page 2) (continued to Page 2) ■&? DIGGING FOR DIAMONDS. Three members of the North Canton i, Jaycees, (1. to r.)
