Proceedings which will be started
within a week or two by the city for
the replatting of Hundaon' Addition
and other Additions on the East Side,
wiil be the opening gun in & cam
paign by the street extension division
of the Municipal Department of Pub
lic Works to eliminate jogs in streets
in various parts of the city, due to ir
regular platting of real estate ad
ditions. Involved in the first replat
ting proposal is Hudson's Addition,
Meadow Park, Fairview Addition and
parts of Quinn's Addition and a few
other smaller tracts.
At present, these additions as laid
out form a tangle of streets, some with
no outlets, others with abrupt Jogs
and offsets and others being irregular
in width. As it is, the entire district
is in bad shape as far as streets are
Plans Are Prepared.
Plans have been prepared by C. F.
Fisher, chief of the street extension
division, for replatting these additions
so that the streets will be uniform and
regular, with no Jogs, blind streets or
obstructions. This can be done, it is
said, without any of the property
owners losing in any way. There will
be a. sufficient amount of property to
give all present property-owners Just
&s many square feet as they have now,
with a sufficient amount of ground left
over - to provide all the money neces
sary to do the work.
The tracts at present have few
houses on them. None of these will
be disturbed. Mr. Fisher has pre
pared plans and reports showing exact
ly what changes will be made and
just how the property will be divided
up so that every present owner will
come out at Je.-.st even. The surplus in
ground will be due to the abolition of
a. few small streets which at present
lead nowhere. Mr. Fisher has prepared
maps showing just how the additions
will look after the changes are made.
Reapportionment Is Proposed. '
The proceedings as arranged call for
the deeding by each property-owner of
all his property to a trustee, the paying
off of all street assessments, the satis
fying of all mortgages and the paying
up of all taxes. In this way the trus
tee will receive a clear title to all the
property and can In turn divide the
property equitably after the replat
proceedings are completed, according
to the reapportionment plan that has
The proceedings will be started under
a provision of the city charter which
provides as follows: "When the Coun
cil shall determine upon the certificate
of the City Engineer or otherwise, that
the plan of an addition or of anv Dlat
or dedication is improper or unsuitable,
it may, by resolution, require the filing
of a new plat subject to the consider
ations hereinbefore set forth, as a con
dition to the establishment of any
grade, or the improvement of any street
in such addition."
A meeting of the property-owners In
the additions will be called early in
July. At this session the plans will
be discussed. It is proposed later to
start proceedings for other projects of a
similar nature in other part of the
