j i j i ; j ' Headwaters Plan For Parkway Has Members' Okeh The proposal for the Headwaters Country Parkway was given approval by members at the group's annual meeting held in Merrill Saturday. The Parkway will be a selected network of roads in the Headwaters area intended to dramatize the feature spots in the area. Attending the meeting were representatives of Chambers of Commerce and resort associations as well as the Headwaters g r o u p, which includes members from all phases of community life. Tlie Parkway plan is to designate feature spots in the area through the use of road side signs. Signs also will be placed on highways leading into the area. A brochure listing the spots and containing pictures and feature stories will be published by the group. County guide maps and trip outlines will be featured in the brochure. Cost of the Parkway plan is estimated at 820,000. How to raise the money is a major problem for the group. A suggestion that a revolving fund of $20,000 be set up with the sponsors being listed in the brochure received the greatest support. The publications would be sold to resorts, hotels and civic agencies at cost for distribution. Other suggestions for publicity of the area was the use of pictures and documentary material in features articles in national magazines. Wedin Main Speaker. Ken Wedin, Merrill, executive secretary of Headwaters, stressed the need for the local committees to work for additional industrial units in their communities in 1954. Wedin was the main speaker at the noon luncheon. He listed "population pressures" as the greatest concern of the Headwaters group in 1954. "We must find ways for all residents," he said, "to make a decent 1 living and improve the standard of living in the area." ! To gain full employment in the! area he urged the local groups to attempt to obtain new industry Insist on FRANK'S FANCY KRAUT in their communities and to aid present industries to enlarge. In the afternoon session the group discussed the possibilities of an industrial panel. This panel would be made/ up of various "experts" in various fields. They would be available to small industrial plants for help in "ironing out" difficulties. While some members expressed a doubt whether .such a plan could be made to work, it was ppi7ited out that in York, Pa., a similar plan has been in operation for some time. )Vedin pointed out that such a program would aid the small industry, a major part of the economy of the area. Because of the location of the Headwaters area, .the group stressed the need of ealargment of preset industry in the area, and the development of industry which would draw their materials from the area and find sales outlets in that area. •| In attendance at the Merrill I meeting were Grafton Berry, chair- j man of the Oneida County com- 1 mittee. and James Zambon, rep- j resenting the Rhinelander Better Resorts Association.
