5.
It was broug h t ou t by Mr. Opp en s h aw that if develo pme n t i s no t under
Urba n Renewa l, credi t s fo r the El e me nt ary a nd J unior Hi g h Sc hool s wo ul d not be
a v ail abl e a nd t hat credit s f o r the se t wo fa cilities would be s ufficient to
balance o ff the entire local
share o f the cost o f an Urban Renewal project.
�It also developed, however, that the Junior High School-Community Center
would be a general community facility serving that whole general area of
the city and not limited to the proposed development area.
60
Since the Junior High-Community Center represents 24 acres out of
the entire Federal Pen Site to be dedicated, that in view of the difficulty
the City is having getting low-income housing sites, particularly for Public
Housing, and the f ac t that the School Department can get si t es anywhere t hey
a re needed, t ha t the overall n ee ds of the City would b e bet ter s e r v e d if this
entire 24 acre portion, which includes some of the best land, would be developed
for low-income housing.
RECOMMENDA TIDN:
(a)
That the housing and related commercial portions of the area be
developed by priva t e enterprise direct, without going through the Urban
Re n e wa l
(b)
