Mosswood Improvement Club - LlOSSi'OOD CLUB WOULD HAVE CITY BUY TRACT...
LlOSSi'OOD CLUB WOULD HAVE CITY BUY TRACT Improvement Organixers May Get Park Through Bond 'Issue. An enthusiastic meeting of the Moss-wood Improvement Club was held at the German Methodist Church., corner of Thirty-eighth and Telegraph, Tuesday night. This club Is comprised of the property owners and. residents In the Immediate vicinity of the Mosswood tract and the primary object of the organisation is to aroua public Interest favoring the purchase of that tract by the City of Oakland and Its permanent Improvement as a public park. The general Impression is that the tract haa already been purchased by the city, but this is not the caa and th probabilities are that the tract will be lost for park purposes unless a united effort favorable to Its purchase by the city Is mad by th residents in that Immediate vicinity. The secondsry cbject of the club IS the general Improvement of th district as a residence section by securing more street lights, better streets, a modern flr department, complete school facilities. Improved sanitary conditions and the prohibition of saloons, laundries and other nuisances. Th regular meetings of th club ar held on th first and third Tuesday even-Inge of each month at the church building above mentioned and the public generally and all persons residing In the Immediate vicinity of th Mosawood tract. In par Urular. ar Invited to attend these meet ings. ' 'T; 1 City Attorney McElroy has advised the club that the enty feasible plan of securing the park is a bond issue by the city end this should be accomplished within the nest few months er the park will pass Into private hands. This particular tract. aO things considered. Is ideal for park purposes ss It Is thoroughly stocked with plants and trees gsthered from all parts 0 the world, and In fact. It has been estimated that there are sufficient plants and trees la this tract to set out all of the landa recently acquired by th city for park purposes. There ar no public parks out In the central past of Oakland and It would seem that this particular tract should be secured; by the city without further delsy. r . - The officers of the rlub ar K. Netlson. president; H. H. Wollcott. vice-president ; C. Fred Burks, secretary; J. Frank Bryant treasurer, C E. Ochs, sergeaat-at-st-arms. -' i: i "
