Under the B-4 zoning classification of the park, a structure may not be built higher than 50 feet. Robert E. Roll of Roll. Johnson and Associates, speaking for this firm as well as associate job architect Edward Stone, further pointed out that the location of the proposed tower is in violation of a setback ordinance The tower is to be built about 20 feet inside the north .dge of the present park line. V city code prevents st'uc-tures from being buil' closer than 30 feet of a property line in B-4. Roll suggested that council perhaps would want to create a new park zone which would; uphold present tower plans. One councilman. Sid Brod-head. reacting to the letter prior to the council meeting, said the present north boundary line of the park perhaps does not constitute a legitimate line because it is a temporary one. The city, through litigation, has condemnation proceedings under way against the owner of the property immediately north of the present 850-feet city holding. The north boundary line then would be shitted perhaps as much as 1.000 feet northward. He suggested that perhaps the height limitation issue could be solved by eliminating municipal structures from having to comply with city codes Bank Plans Doll Contest For Charity NORTH PALM BEACH -Dolls from an "imaginative doll-dressing'' contest to be held by the First American Bank of North Palm Beach will go to a charity to be named later before Christmas.
