RKSHT NEWS Uncle S£m Will Build Tennessee Town to Order FRIDAY, .NOVEMBER -W; Farm and Industry Will Blend in Community at . Norris Dam Site. ""Thl? Is Iht first of I wo articles nn the "made-lo-onler" town which Uncle Sam is building at Xorrls Dam, Tennessee, using a scientific plan aimed at retaining the natural beauty, firing ffrcaler ron- vtiiknce, and assuring economy cf municipal operation. I!>-;NKA Service KNOXVILLE, Tenn , Nov. .24.—! When you think o( n "model i town." you're apt to llilnk ol tiills., and gingerbread, and half-baked, j but twice-costly, iimovr.iions. i But the final decision on details of the town of Norris, byproduct of the great Tennessee Valley cx- perlmen! centering alxml Muscle Shoals, shows moderation, sensl- biilts, ami such an evident unwillingness to waste money, Dint it .doesn't seem like a "model town" at all. . In fact. Earlc S. Draper, land planning and housing director of the TVA, insists that it isn't a ''model town," but simply "a thoughtful' and conscientious effort to smooth out and eliminate some of the crudeness and haphazard developments of the typical small town." •••When you build a big dam out in unsettled country, the builders have to live somewhere. Usually it's in an ugly string of board barracks, or. at best, in the neat geometrical rows of similar houses that make up most of Ihf homes ol permanent workers in and around the dain. PERMANENT HOMES FOR DAM WORKERS But- as actual construction of Norris Dam on Cove Creek Is nbout to begin, far up the Tennessee Val- lev from the Muscle Shoals project it complements, a new nnd better town plan seems certain. It's necessary there (o provide houslnst for 2000/ workers on the flriiii: But why. reasoned the TVA. build durable houses, roads, sewers and lights, only to abandon them when the dam is finished? ' That's .wasteful. So the (own of Norris will not only the liiiilders of the dam. but so will fct! built as to remain after the dnm is finished, a permanent town housing the permanent workers In and around the dam. It will be a community based on Ine orderly combination of Industrial Jobs and subsistence farming which is expected to spring up around Norris Dam. The site chosen for the new town covers 2500 acres. Its center is four miles by road from the clam. It Is on a high, rugged bluff between the Clinch River and Buffalo Creek valleys. It is cut. off from the surround- by steep valleys and alw by a' belt of 2000 acres of agricultural and wooded land, to be . cultivated by the town residents. TOWN WILL STAY AT ORIGINAL SIZE This isolation will prevent the growing up of ramshnckle suburbs, a defect which often has spoiled even well-planned towns. Instead of. striving to get bigger and bigger, as towns have been doing in the past. Norris Is planned to stay the same size. At its center will be a group of municipal buildings adjoining a L4-acrc park. Space is providcc for downtown stores, hotel, garages, markets, and the like, desired. Building lots will average 75 bs MO. feet, about a third of an acre The narrow frontage means le cost for sewers, water mains, nnd v. Jjaving, while the great deptl means space for gardening, frul trees, and outdoor activities. The belt of farm land about tin town offers a chance for eacl house-holder to get plots of abou four acres to carry on the farm in» which is to help support him DKAH END STREETS .

It will, because of its scenic :auty nnd convenience, undoubt- dlv become a popular tourist ghwny. But it will differ from most of] lem. For it is fully and pcrpet- illy protected nfratst encroach- ent of signboards, holdog stands, lacks, and all the other roadside utter which disfigures so many '.hcrwlso beautiful highways.
