' iS DISCUSSED
Realtors Urge Greater Care
Irt Future Planning of
Zoning of the city so as to pro
vide restrictions 4 for residence,
business and manufacturing areas
met with the hearty approval of
the Marion-Polk Uounty Realty
association at its luncheon Thurs
day and will be one of the big
objectives of the organization.
Following much favbrable dis
cussion the appointment of a com
mittee to formulate specific plans
and to obtain the endorsement of
the federated clubs of the city
before being presented to the city
council, was approved. This com
mittee will be named in a few
days by J. A. Mills, chairman of
the meeting, and be Instructed to
give some sort of a report in two
Rights Are Protectee!
City zoning, , according to a
pamphlet quoted by R. A. Harris,
has as its chief motive the pro
tection ojt rights and liberties of
each section. It gives everyone
an equal chance for their rights.
The regulations are similar for
all districts of the same class.
Zoning should go hand in hand
with city planning, civic improve
ments, playgrounds and. parks. It
was pointed out that a disorgan
ized family permits the daughter
to make fudge in the parlor, the
father to place his shoes under
the stairway, mother to place
soiled clothes In the -bathtub and
the young boy to make muddy
tracks on the front porch. A city
that has no restrictions, accord
ing to the pamphlet, is similar to
such a family. r
Tree Planting Discussed
While on the subject of znoing;
the question of uniform tree plant
ing was again resurrected, and It
was the concensus of opinion that
efforts to obtain ' this should not
be dropped, for the two questions
are closely related. Much edu
cational work must be done be
fore it can be hoped to enact any
kind of satisfactory zoning laws,
it was said. Portland has been
working on the plan for several
years and this fall will see the
subject placed on the ballot. Even
with the endorsement and. sup
port of other civic organizations,
Salem 'could not expect to see
such a law in operation for several
years. - ;
. Views Are Aired
Views of individual , members
were glvtn . during the luncheon.
Chief of these were that the re
sults were well worth the .neces
sary ' efforts; other cities i have
adopted such; opposition Is to be
expected from the atolid dld-tlmer
element; that the first : move
should come from the city coun
cil, which has the power to enact
the legislation; that it is the civic
duty of the real estate people to
assist in beautifying the city and
bend their efforts toward this end;
that the realtors are the closest
in touch with conditions and that
there are a few classes of foreign
ers and undesirable citizens that
should be kept in' their own sec
tion of the city. ; It was ' also
pointed out that Oregon has a
state law authorizing cities to en
act zoning legislation In all classes
Winslow Building lilt
The Walter Winslow store on
North Capitol, directly across from
the new J. L. Parrish Junior high
school, was criticized and pointed
to much after the fashion ot tha
"horrible example'' used to empha
size the remarks of a prohibition
worker. It Is to prevent the oc
currence of such conditions i that
the zoning movement Is advocated.
