T h e ' ordinance udopted unanimously by the Council amended t h e code to require approved smoke detectors in all new residential occupancies- ranging from new homes to new'apartmenti to new motels. The ordinance also requires sprinkler systems in neu buildings taller than ( 0 - f e e t . in high hazard occupancies .such a s w arehonses for che mic a products, and in large a$^emhl 'or storage buildinss with -more than 15,000 square feet of floor area. , · Fire Chief- Mickey Jacksoi said that Un existing building is expanded so (hat it has more than 15,000 square feet, then by this ordinance, sprinklers must be placed in the otc section of the building as wel "as the new part. Jackson said that . whili hospitals and nursing home - would be required to have p t i n k l e r s , churches a n d chools \Voulrt nol be affected · the amendment. A f t e r the seven page ordinance was read, the Council adopted it with little further discussion- The emergency clause thai would make the ordinance effective upon its publication was ulso adopted. The Council also approved a memorandum of agreement jet ween the city and the.Urban Renewal Agency, okayed four new Com mu nity Develop me nl projects, sent a rczoning request back to the Plan rang Commission for further study, and reallocated $62,513 in unused 1975-76 revenue sharing funds. The memo of agreement approved by ttie Council is the first step toward "closing out" the Downtown Emma urban renewal projject. Everything h the original project plan has been completed except for sonie street work lhal is now in progress and except tor the re development of three parcels of lund. With this memo of agree tnent, signed by both - the cit and the Urban Renewa Agency, the city agrees to purchase these three parcels and to sell them (or redevelop-! ment. Money obtained from the sale of the parcels and money left in the Downtown K m in a account after tlic project is losert "out w i l l ' be put into p r i n g d \ i l e ' s Community development program. U r b a n Renewal Agency' iirector Hilton Lewis said that he agencv's other project in own, the Spring Creek urban renewal project. IK expected to ie closed out this fall. C o m m u n 11 y Development irogram director Jerry Reeves asked the council to approve four projects n o 1 originally ncluded in the program's first vear budget. Reeves said the ropel s would be f ina tic cd ith first vear funds that were eft over f r o m the contingency f u n d a n d t h e housing rehabilitation program. The council approved the f o u r projects which included the installation of a six-inch sewer line and « six inch water line from the existing eight-inch lines on Powell to the end oE James Avenue. This project, which will be undertaken by the city's sireet department, will cost about 512.000, Reeves said. Before the work can bs done, the property owners must agree lo dedicate the street lo he city, he added. Alderman Bob Reed asked it .he homes on James were r e n t a l or owner-occupied residences. Reeves said most of I hem were owner-occupied. Alderman Charles McKinney .said the properly owners have agreed lo pay the cost of booking onto the water and sewer lines, The second project is for a sewer lift s t a t i o n and a sewer line (o the station on -County Line Read, just east.vof Ilwy. 71 north. W i t h city employes d o i n g Ihe work. Reeves! estimated the cost of the| project at $26.000. Reed asked if this money could be diverted to the neigh- I b o r h o o d parks program- I specifically the . yet-unpaved tennis courts. Reeves replied thai (be neigh-. | borhood parks program was set ' u p as n two-year program and noted that $200.000 of the first year's total CD hinds was used in this program. Reed .then voted w i t h - the rest of the c m m c i l t o a p p r o v e ' I h e $26.000 project. I The third request for $12,000 in CD money that was approved will purchase 2,000 feet of fiver inch hose and eight standard thread a d a p t o r s for the Spring-! dale Fire Department. The f o u r t h CD project that Alder* mean okayed was a drainage project on the west side of Deavcr Street, from the norlh side of Charlcsworth Pontiac to the ditch behind the Si/.zlin' Sirloin This S3.400 project, to be u n d e r t a k e n by city employes, wilt drain the runoff water from Allen and Maple Avenues.
