WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 1976 * Homes parade* expansion plan will mean delay By CHERYLE RODRIGUEZ CHUen Stall Writer Tucson's first inner city Parade of Homes, originally billed as a spring showing of town houses, has been postponed until fall and expanded to include s i n g l e - f a m i l y homes. Peter D. Herder, president of the Southern Arizona Home Builders Association, said his group's "parade" now is scheduled for early November in conjunction with an annual appliance m a n u f a c t u r e r s ' exhibit at the Tucson Community Center. Builders say the delay was caused by incomplete planning and paperwork necessary to organize the Parade of Homes. ]n order to make the new November date, Herder said building sites must be selected within the next 90 days and that construction must begin by mid-June. One source close to the project, however, said that he doubted either of the two requirements could be met in time and that he feared the show might have to be postponed until the spring of 1977. Herder said meeting the target date depends on close cooperation with city and county officials so that builders can secure zoning changes and building permits quickly.

NO PAYMENT 'til MAY* AM LEVITZ Alien solution doubted PHOENIX (AP) -- One out of 12 Mexicans lives in the United States illegally and there is little hope of changing that fact, the U.S. State Department's director of Mexican affairs says. An estimated 5 million of Mexico's 60 million citizens are in the United States illegally, John Dreyfus said in a luncheon interview at American Graduate School of International Management. Mexico needs to develop "labor intensive" industry to absorb its rapidly growing labor force, but has shown little progress toward that goal, said Dreyfus. The 12 participating builders also must agree on a development plan for the dwellings. Herder also noted that the 1976 Parade of Homes would be the first project attempted by builders to "educate" home buyers and offer them what they profess to want. Builders and city officials still hope the parade will demonstrate an alternative to urban sprawl and a means to revive the downtown area. At first the parade was to feature town houses only, a decision supported by a $10,000 city-financed report conducted by Generations Corp. The study concluded that the downtown area is a "strong market" for such multiple- unit dwellings. Then, a subsequent report, published in a national builders' magazine, revealed that 95 per cent of all home buyers prefer a separate house to one in a complex. That evidence prompted the association to expand the Parade of Homes, said Herder. Consequently, there could be as many as a dozen $30,000 to $40,000 homes on single lots, in addition to a town house development on five to 10 acres with units priced up to $50,000. All of the homes will be built within an IS-square-mile zone that has been designated the inner city. Boundaries, are Grant and Country Club roads, 22nd Street and Silverbell Road. The exact prices, designs and locations are being determined specifically to attract the 8,000 families a year that Generations Corp. said would consider buying a home in the inner city if suitable housing were available.
