Gilliland's body was taken to the Fairchild Funeral Home in Fort Lauderdale, where funeral services are slated to be held at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday. Gilliland is survived by his widow, June; two children, till Alternate Proposals Considered BOYNTO.N BEACH -Whether W. Ocean Avenue will continue to serve "East Boynton" and "West Boynton" after Interstate 95 is built through the city remains a moot point. After a Monday meeting with city officials and about 40 interested persons. Arnold Ramos, State Road Department Dist. 4 engineer, said that it was "still to be studied." Ramos and Donald Morgan, director of the Palm Beach County Area Planning Board, met for about an hour and a half Monday morning with the city council, representatives of the Chamber of Commerce and the City Planning and Zoning Board. Remarking that providing continued access along Ocean Avenue after 1-95 is built would be costly, and would result in "less safe" crossing of the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad tracks, Ramos asked, "Why not another street other than Ocean Avenue." Ramos said that the State Road Department recognizes the need for additional access with the coming of Palm Beach Leisureville. He said that he is willing to support a third grade separation (in addition to those planned at NW 22nd Avenue and SW 23rd Avenue) in the city, to allow east-west access for Leisureville residents and "the rest of the city." A proposal by Councilman T. A. Summers was countered by Ramos and Morgan. Summers had stated, "I have yet to be sold that we need an interchange at NW 2nd Avenue. Why not move it to NW 22nd1 For those that want to get on 1-95, it will be only a 15-block drive." Morgan countered, "You're simply underestimating the amount of traffic that is going to be using this roadway." Gerald Dake, retained by the city as its planner, remarked that growth to the west of 1-95 is "going to be fantastic." He urged Ramos to "do everything" within his power to gain additional access under or over 1-95 somewhere between the interchanges proposed for NW 2nd Avenue and SW 15th Avenue. After considerable discussion of possibilities for locations, the meeting ended with Ramos promising to work with Gerald Dake Associates to decide if some alternate route would serve the present city, the residents of the now-being built Leisureville, and meet the requirements of sound planning and the State Road Department. Ramos said that extending the present W Ocean Avenue under or over 1-95 would be the most expensive alternate. "It is possible from the engineering standpoint," Ramos told Henry Thompson, president of the Chamber of Commerce, "but it is the simple "maker" money. Any ol our problems could be overcome if we had enough money." To a request from Mavor Michael V. Michael for full signalization of the intersection of Congress Avenue and State 804, Ramos said that a new study of the intersection was instigated last week. Fort Pierce Distributes Its Report FORT PIERCE -The annual report of the City of Fort Pierce was distributed to residents of the city by meter readers and other personnel Monday, according to an announcement by City Manager George Adkins. Approximately 10,000 copies of the booklet have been prepared, showing the officials of the city and explaining their functions. On the cover are pictures of the municipal building on S. Sixth Street and the power plant on Indian River Drive. There is an introduction by Adkins, telling in brief of the year's accomplishments (the booklet covers the 1967-68 fiscal year); there is a diagram showing the organization of all city departments; and there are brief reports and pictures telling the activities of each department. The controversial development of the city marina receives a fair share of publicity through not only the printed word but a total of nine pictures showing both the "before" and the "after" stages of development. Post Offices Kick Christmas Habit chairman, said the dates for the door-to-door sale will be announced later. Brooms are manufactured at the Lions Industry for the Blind in West Palm Beach; all work is done bv blind personnel. Berry said the sale by the local club will serve a two-fold purpose since the profit made finances the club's program to aid indigents of the area and helps provide a payroll to persons handicapped by blindness at the industry in West Palm Beach. Sight conservation is the main objective ol the Stuart club, providing purchase of glasses alter proper examination, and surgery to alleviate sight difficulties where possible. Berry said.

The board serves in an advisory capacity, with the council having the final work in zoning or related decisions. The petition for rezoning the property from residential to business and residential was voted down by the board by a 4-2 vote count. Board members James Becker and Howard McCall voted for the rezoning. Citing a conflict of interest, member Robert Feltner stepped down from voting. A standing-room-only crowd attended the meeting. Their interest was primarily in seeing the rezoning application defeated. Approval of the application would have allowed Bancstock to develop a shopping center on the tract, part of a 235-acre company holding in the Boca Raton Square subdivision. Future traffic problems which could be created by a shopping center there were cited as one of the reasons why board members voted against the rezoning, it was disclosed. Bancstock representatives insisted the company had no immediate plans to develop a shopping center at the site, but rather wanted the same business-residential zoning which exists opposite the tract, on the north side of Palmetto Park Road. Tylander said he had not completed his report on the rezoning matter, and couldn't speculate when a decision on possible future action would be made.
