Mrs. Orton then moved to allow the option to expire when the company provides 300 jobs, as the company had asked, and Paul Noland seconded. T. C. Carlson stood up in Ihe audience to say the "yankec" lawyers for Armstrong are probably "chuckling like mad" over the contract. Before Ihe industry was accepted, the park commiUec r e p 1 i.e d to Mrs. Carlson questions that the industry had employe practices comparable to local industries, a good retirement program, and would abide by the air or water pollution rules. "It's only that I regret that 50 to 100 to 200 years from now when the heirs come to sell this land, I believe it 'should reverl to the city, but we've already seen the wishes of your elected representatives," she said. Stanton moved the land be sold and il passed, 6-1, over Mrs. Carlson's objection. The board postponed con sideration of the Hwy. 62 land- use plan after Larry Wood of t h e Northwest Arkansas R e g i o n a l Planning Commission said Ihe matter was not urgent. Two rezoning petitions are pending on the results, one · of which has been postponed 1V4 months awaiting the board's action. The board postponed con sideration of the Planned Unit Development (PUD) reduction after Purdy and Mrs. Orton saic they believed reducing the PUD acreage from 20 acres to about VA acres in an R-3 (high density residential) zone was too drastic a reduction. Stanton pointed out that the proposal would not allow housing to be any more dense in a PUD than already is allowed except in low-density residential, where the minimum would be five acres and setback requirements of 100 feet would protect surrounding low-density areas. The taxicab study, conducted during three months late las year, said the Yellow Cab Co of Fayeltevilla failed to display Identification of the driver am · "base area" map, gatherec some evidence that "doubling up" was being practiced, am Jhat incorrect fares were being charged, perhaps due to the confusing city -rules governing rates. Ronnie Woodruff, an attorney representing the cab company said he took exception to the study. "I don't feel this study i accurate," he said. "... I think this report needs a Ihorougl look-through without acceptini it at face value." The city solicited comment pn the mailer for "a l o n g time," Woodruff said, an received only two dozen replies "I think it is always casie to complain than to praise 'cople who are going lo cspond to these things arc the omplainers. It's not a clear ndication ot public sentiment."
